A number of students have been busy in the lab this summer, making some great progress on their experiments. Here's a few highlights from what we've accomplished:
1. We have put the finishing touches on our lab's first official paper! Hopefully there will be many more to come.

Deep learning algorithms have become a popular way to extract useful information from images (e.g., to classify, segment and track objects).
July 31, 2017
I was recently awarded a nice price from Friedrich-Alexander University (FAU): the SAOT Young Researcher Award, which comes with some prize money and a guest professor appointment. I will spend the beginning of 2018 as a [...]

We have a new method that can take really fast videos of small micro-organisms that swim around on top of a sensor. It is based on a modified phase retrieval algorithm. You can find the paper here.
November 1, 2016
I recently gave an invited talk at the Lasers for Sensing and Free-space Communication conference in Boston, which included a very interesting mix of research fields!
August 15, 2016
We describe how a new microscope can create 3D images of thick, primarily transparent specimens in a new article in Optica.
June 1, 2016
I will join Duke University's Biomedical Engineering Department as an assistant professor in 2018, after finishing my postdoctoral fellowship in Berlin. If you hope to start graduate school or a postdoc in a couple of years and find my work interesting, please feel free to get in touch!

Characterizing the resolution of a microscope can be a little bit tricky. In the following paper, we outline a set of guidelines and propose a common resolution standard for a particular class of microscopes that image with coherent light:

Over the past 6 months, I've mostly been working on a way to extend our Fourier ptychographic method to operate in 3D. Now, we can use a regular microscope and an LED array to capture the full volume of a thick biological specimen:
