Computational imaging and microscopy

BIDS Senior Fellow Laura Waller is again offering this project through UC Berkeley's Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (URAP) for the Fall 2021 academic semester. 

Eligible undergraduates may apply online August 18-30, 2021.

Project Description

We are building new microscopes that use computation to do things that microscopes normally can't, like 3D imaging, gigapixel imaging or phase imaging. We need motivated people with either (or both) of:

  1. Signal processing experience (EE120) or programming our image processing algorithms in Matlab or C or Python
  2. Willingness to get your hands dirty building things with optics and electronics (no experience necessary in this part). Will work closely with biologists, optics folks who build microscopes and collaborators.
  3. Experience writing code, meeting with graduate students, presenting work at group meeting, and possibly, building optical devices at home.

Qualifications: Python and EE120, other image processing and optimization classes helpful.
