Hi, I’m Talon.

I’m a third year Ph.D. student studying Medical Physics at the University of Chicago. I’m developing polarized light microscopes with Dr. Patrick La Rivière and Dr. Rudolf Oldenbourg. I’m currently living and working at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA.

I graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2015 with a B.A.Sc. in Engineering Physics.

I’m interested in physics, bees, and ultramarathon running.


2017-12-01: Our work on determining the orientation of single molecules with multi-view polarized light microscopes appeared in Optics Express. More….

2017-11-01: I co-presented a talk titled “Mapping molecular orientation using polarized light microscopy” with Rudolf Oldenbourg at the Stanford SCIEN Colloquium. More…

2017-08-01: I’ve moved from Chicago to Woods Hole, MA to work with Rudolf Oldenbourg at the Marine Biological Laboratory. I’ll move back to Chicago in ~1 year.
