Jesse joined the Advanced Imaging Center in 2014, and has nearly 20 years’ experience in microscope design, development, and application across a wide range of biological models.  He previously was Senior Engineer at Vutara, Inc., in Salt Lake City, UT, where he helped to successfully commercialize 3D super-resolution microscopy systems based on the biplane detection method (see M.F. Juette, et al., Nat. Meth. 2008).  Jesse performed postdoctoral work at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM, where he implemented several high-resolution optical imaging systems, including TIRF, STORM, hyperspectral, and STED microscopies, with biological applications ranging widely from cell surface receptor tracking and innate immune response, to algal biofuels research.  Jesse received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin under the guidance of Konstantin Sokolov and Rebecca Richards-Kortum.
