Tiancheng Curly Zuo collaborated with Harrison Goldwyn from the Masiello Lab at the University of Washington to use a combination of single-molecule microscopy and analytical theory to understand how far-field interference and off-resonant coupling contribute to the rotation of dye emission by plasmonic nanorods.

We say goodbye this week to recent Biophysics PhD Dr. Josh Karslake who will be learning yet more math as a data analyst at Groundspeed Analytics! Welcome to Christopher Azaldegui and Saaj Chattopadhyay who begin their PhDs this week!
Hannah Chia’s review of labeling strategies for fluorescence microscopy in anaerobes (where conventional oxygen-dependent fluorescent proteins like GFP fail) is now out in Current Opinion in Chemical Biology!

We bid farewell this week to recent lab graduate Dr. Stephen Lee who is moving on to a postdoc in the Link and Landes labs at Rice University! Welcome to Isabel Weber Cravioto who has joined us this summer for the UM Biophysics NSF REU program.
Congratulations to Josh Karslake who defended and submitted his thesis on “Uncovering Hidden Dynamics in Living Systems Using Bayesian Statistics and Single-Molecule Microscopy!”
First-year rotations have concluded and now the Biteen Lab is excited to extend an OFFICIAL welcome to Zechariah Pfaffenberger, Anna Calkins, and Ziyuan Chen who will be with us for the long haul!
Congratulations to Stephen Lee who defended his thesis on “Enhanced, Live-Cell, Super-Resolution Imaging and Single-Molecule Emission Spectrum Reshaping”! Stephen will do some last experiments in our lab this spring before moving on to a postdoctoral research position.
We’re excited to welcome Dr. Aathmaja Rangarajan to the lab and so glad to welcome back Ziyuan Chen and Zechariah Pfaffenberger! Fun to have a full house in the Biteen Lab.
A belated hello to all the new folks in the Biteen Lab this semester! We’re pleased to welcome fall semester Chemistry Department rotators Anna and Liz, Monica who joins us as a UROP Research Scholar, and Kaitlyn who joins us through the Undergrad Research Opportunity Program.
