Research

We use advanced microscopy to figure out how bugs work.

We study basic principles of biological spatial organization in bacteria, 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 microbiology, quantitative biology and biophysics.

Key research themes:

  • Principles of bacterial spatial organization
  • Bacterial cell division
  • Super-resolution microscopy
  • Bacterial cytoskeleton/ #proteinsticks
