Personal profile

Personal Statement

My research interests lie in exploiting properties of diamond that allow it to sense electric and magnetic fields. By optically imaging sub-100nm particles of diamond, I hope to use them as sensors for detecting the fields generated by living cells, particularly neurons.

In order to take advantage of the small size of the nanodiamond, I also use superresolution techniques to increase the precision with which we can determine the location of the nanodiamond. As the particles are embedded in living tissue, it will also be necessary to use adaptive optics methods to correct for the optical aberrations introduced by the tissue and which, uncorrected, would degrade the quality of the imaging.
