My research at Janelia centers on the photophysics of fluorescent molecules to help understand and improve cell imaging, two-photon microscopy, and superresolution imaging.  I also work on fiber-based optrodes for optogenetics research.  In past research, I contributed to the development of new types of lasers and lasers without inversion, high-order harmonic generation, single-molecule detection, and DNA sequencing based on phosphate-labeled nucleotides.  I received my B.A. in Physics from SUNY-Binghamton, my Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University, and did postdoctoral work at AT&T Bell Laboratories.  I held research positions at Bell Labs and Seq Ltd., and research management positions at Praelux Inc., Amersham Biosciences, and GE Healthcare.
