I am a Biophysicist with significant experience in optical imaging and biological structures with specialization in fluorescence, confocal, harmonic generation and multiphoton microscopy methods applied to structural biology and various cellular physiological events. My expertise includes strong hands-on experience and in-depth theoretical knowledge of modern optical microscopy principles including fluorescence, confocal, harmonic generation and multiphoton microscopy methods, as well as the interferometry, ellipsometry, diffraction and various light scattering methods along with fine structural analysis of biological matters. I have been involved in various multidisciplinary projects, which resulted in numerous original peer reviewed research publications in high quality journals, plus published proceedings/ books chapters and published abstracts. My lead role in these imaging modalities has resulted in invited review articles on the potential use of these imaging modalities in cellular level remodeling as well as several invited presentations at the international conferences. As the Director of Microscopy Imaging Core Lab at the Penn State Hershey College of Medicine, my role involves the development of novel biomedical imaging methods and collaborating with investigators regarding applications of advanced microscopy systems for visualizing and quantifying physiological events involving cells in fixed, ex vivo, in vivo as well as in relevant intra-vital high resolution imaging. I serve biomedical optical community as an Academic Editor of PLoS ONE and as an expert reviewer of dozens of journals.
