Researcher biography

I am a third year PhD student in both the Scott lab and the Optical Micromanipulation group (Halina Rubinzstein-Dunlop group).  I completed my Master and Engineering degree in Biophotonics at ENSPS in Strasbourg, France. I am interested in the properties of light as it passes through biological media, and particularly as it penetrates neural tissue.  During my project I developed multiple systems for optogenetics in Zebrafish involving holographic illumination created with Spatial Light Modulators (SLM), in-vivo optical micromanipulation and SPIM Microscopy (Selective Planar illumination Microscopy).
