Paul completed a BS in the combined Electrical and Materials Engineering program at UC Berkeley in 2010. For his PhD, he focused on technology development for neuroscience at MIT. Using his background in polymeric materials, Paul conceived and co-developed a new method for imaging nano-scale structures in biological tissue by embedding the tissue in a swellable material, digesting away the mechanical structure of the tissue, and using the material to drive uniform expansion. This technique, termed Expansion Microscopy, modifies the specimen itself and so allows an effective ~4-fold resolution enhancement of any existing microscope.
