Dr Eric Rees

Subject Chemical Engineering
Fellow type Lecturers, Professors and College Officers
Year started 2014


Eric Rees develops software for extracting quantitative measurements from optical image data with the highest possible accuracy. He mainly works with fluorescence microscopy, especially optical nanoscopy methods for super-resolution imaging — the 2014 Nobel prize in Chemistry was awarded to three groups in this field who pioneered the use of light microscopes to measure structures far smaller than the wavelength of light. There is currently huge scope for improving on the mathematical methods that underlie this field, and applying it to new materials and disciplines. He is working on new nanoscopy methods for studying shell structures such as viruses and spores, and on applying fluroescence methods to rheometry.
