Single-Molecule & Single-Cell Nanometric Biophysics

Our lab works at the interface between physics, nanotechnology, and biology. We combine quantitative super-resolved fluorescence microscopy, single-particle tracking, single-molecule fluorescence techniques and statistical physics and modeling to study biological systems at various scales, ranging from individual biological macromolecules (proteins, DNA, RNA) to individual cells/bacteria. We aim to understand quantitatively the fundamental physics that controls the central processes that remain unknown/unclear. We are interested in building cutting-edge biophysical tools to boost advances in biology and to gain fresh views of nature, and observing biology and nature to inspire new physics and novel ways to apply physics.
