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 2020 academic semester. Eligible undergraduates may apply online August 19-31, 2020.

Participants in this project are building new microscopes that use computation to do things that microscopes normally can't, like 3D imaging, gigapixel imaging or phase imaging. This undergraduate internship project is seeking motivated interns with either (or both) of the following:

  1. Signal processing experience (EE120) or programming our image processing algorithms in Matlab or C or Python
  2. Building things with optics and electronics (no experience necessary in this part). This apprenticeship will work closely with biologists, optics folks who build microscopes, and collaborators.

Other activities will include 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.
