My area of research includes ways to improve the quality of microscopic and macro images that are used for publication, as well as web based and iPad teaching. The staff members in Photography and Graphic Arts and I are always glad to provide personal consultation about use of specialized imaging techniques and equipment that investigators require for conducting experiments and presenting their findings.
