My research focuses on the development and application of single-molecule fluorescence techniques at low temperatures. In particular, I exploit the superior photophysical properties of organic dyes in a cryogenic environment to perform ultrahigh-resolution microscopy at the Angstrom level, where the structure of individual biomolecules becomes accessible.
