Talon Chandler

Hi, I’m Talon.

I’m a fifth year Ph.D. student at the University of Chicago in the Graduate Program in Medical Physics. I’m developing spatio-angular microscopes with Dr. Patrick La Rivière and Dr. Rudolf Oldenbourg.

My goal is to develop microscopy techniques that can measure the position, orientation, and rotational mobility of fluorescent molecules and apply these techniques to fundamental biological problems.

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.
