Research Objectives:

As a joint student with the Backman Biophotonics Lab, I study oncology in terms of structure-function abnormalities. Combining super-resolution microscopy, partial wave spectrometry microscopy, and electron microscopy, my project aims at visualizing and quantifying chromatin alterations in early carcinogenesis. For the Dravid group, I am also devoted to developing high-throughput, automated 3-D tomography reconstruction strategies which will benefit the group in the big-data era.
