Research interests

  • Bridging the gap between image acquisition and image analysis.
  • Interdisciplinary research in life sciences (full range from biology, adaptive optics and microscopy to bio-image analysis, software engineering and high performance computing).

Current projects

  • Smart microscopy
  • Microscope control software development
  • Adaptive microscopy / adaptive optics
  • Long-term SPIM imaging of developing Drosophila, Tribolium, Zebrafish etc.
