Our research is focused on biophotonics, super-resolution and advanced optical microscopy. We strive to innovate in ways that both advance the imaging science and also impact biological and translational research. We are particularly interested in new imaging physics, bottom-up opto-electronic system design, as well as new principles for light propagation, light-matter interaction and image formation in complex biological materials, especially at the single-molecule level. Toward the application end, we have expertise in a wide range of imaging instrumentation and techniques, such as super-resolution, adaptive optics, light-field, miniaturized, light-sheet, and computational microscopy.

We currently focus on new techniques to address the challenges in 1) mapping functional networks of biological systems from molecules to the whole organ, 2) imaging collective patterns of cellular activities flowing within these networks in freely behaving animals, and 3) integrating and transforming molecular and cellular imaging information into health and disease.
