I am a postdoctoral researcher in Medical Engineering at the Morgridge Institute for Research receiving training in fluorescence imaging technologies and implementation under the direction of Dr. Melissa Skala . My research focuses on the development of rapid imaging platforms for drug discovery in cancer therapy and beyond. Specifically, I am using fluorescence lifetime approaches to quickly determine drug efficacy “at-a-glance” for personalized cancer therapies.
