October 2015: Construction of the Lew Lab in Green Hall at Washington University in St. Louis is complete. Visit our website for the most current information about our research.
July 2015: I have joined the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis as an Assistant Professor. Postdoc and graduate student positions are available. Interested applicants can contact me via the information below. Read
January 2015: I gave an invited talk "Accurate nanoscale imaging of dipole-like emitters" at Stefan Hell's group retreat at Ringberg Castle, Germany.

My lab develops cutting-edge imaging technologies for visualizing the intricate dynamic behaviors of biomolecules in living organisms.

I work across the fields of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, single-molecule spectroscopy, molecular imaging, and biophotonics. My research focuses on combining novel molecular and nanoparticle tags with modern optical designs and sophisticated image processing algorithms to create new imaging technologies for bioscience and medical applications.
