Summary

I am a biologist with great passion in optics and engineering. In my academic career, I had a lot of experience on building different microscope or imaging systems such as a spinning disc confocal microscope and two photon microscope. As a biologist, I am very interested in applying up-to-date technology to solve challenging scientific problems. As an optics engineer, I am excited on realizing new ideas into microscope and obsessed in their performance. My wish is to work on a cutting-edge microscope to have a breaking discovery in neuroscience.
