Research

We use advanced microscopy to figure out how bugs work.

Key research themes:

  • Physical principles of bacterial spatial organization
  • Bacterial cell division and cell wall remodelling
  • Single molecule & super-resolution microscopy
  • Open source scientific software and hardware

We study basic principles of biological spatial organization in living cells, with a particular focus on how bacteria divide. To achieve this we develop novel experimental methods based on single molecule & super-resolution microscopy, microfabrication and microfluidics.

We work across the disciplines of biophysics, microbiology and microscopy.

**** We currently have a post-doc and staff scientist position available! See the jobs page for more details ***
