I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Professor Gáspár Jékely research group, at the Living Systems Institute.
My primary specialization is electron microscopy (EM) and my interests root in cell biology. I am involved in the examination of nervous systems of marine invertebrate larvae. Currently, I am using serial section electron microscopy and related approaches to create several large high resolution 3D image databases to accomplish this objective.
I also strive to promote collaboration, education and training in the field of EM.
