Hi, I’m Talon.

I’m a fourth 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 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.


2018-01-12: I’ve posted a pair of preprints on spatio-angular fluorescence microscopy with Hari Shroff, Rudolf Oldenbourg, and Patrick La Rivière. Part 1 and Part 2.

2018-11-26: I’ll be participating in an NSF workshop titled Enabling Biological Discovery through Innovations in Imaging and Computation in Woods Hole, MA.

2018-09-01: I’ve moved back to Chicago from Woods Hole.

2018-06-23: I’m presenting a talk titled “Spatio-angular restoration of
fluorescence microscopy data” at the Optics Society of America Imaging and Applied Optics Conference in Orlando, FL this week.

2018-06-17: I’m presenting a talk and poster titled “Spatio-angular restoration of fluorescence microscopy data” at the Gordon Image Science Conference in Easton, MA this week. More…

2018-04-02: I’m presenting a poster titled “Single-fluorophore orientation determination with multiview polarized illumination microscope” at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) in Washington, DC this week. More…

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.
