I am currently building a high throughput two-photon microscope for imaging large volumes of fixed tissue –as large as 1 cm^3– in-situ and with sub-micron resolution. This novel technology will be used to understand how cells form tissue at large scales in 3D. As part of this project, I have established a new Mesoimaging Laboratory at the MPI-CBG.

I work in close collaboration with the Zerial Lab to digitally reconstruct the mouse liver. Check out their latest work: "A versatile pipeline for the multi-scale digital reconstruction and quantitative analysis of 3D tissue architecture"
