Multiphoton Microscopy

We design high-resolution nonlinear microscopes to study the three-dimensional vascular and neuronal structures of the cortex at depths pushing the limits of optical imaging.

3D Single Particle Tracking

We built a three-dimensional particle tracking system (TSUNAMI) capable of spatial localization far beyond the diffraction limit for use in studying molecular transport dynamics.

Oxygen Tension Imaging

We combine imaging techniques to simultaneously track multiple hemodynamic parameters to study the effects of ischemic stroke on the cortex.
