We develop optical imaging techniques to enable biological studies that are difficult or impossible to approach with traditional methods. Our technical development focuses on novel contrast, functional imaging, volumetric quantification, and live analysis. Applying these imaging tools, we pursue new understandings of biological process, dynamic interaction, and 4D physiology on tissue and cell levels.

***We have openings for postdoctoral researcher, research technician, and PhD student. Please contact Shang if interested.***
