Adam is our resident astronomer and space nerd, lending insight and skills in optics and data analysis. When not writing unique analysis scripts in Matlab or Python, he's building a custom selective plane illumination microscope (SPIM) for whole organ imaging.

In his spare time he's constructing his own telescope... from scatch!

Kyle is a displaced chemist who feels at home amongst optical breadboards and lasers. He spends most of his time working with the Lattice Light Sheet Microscope, but will occassionally come up for air and analysis projects, or oddjobs like building a website.

In his spare time you'll find him with his dog, a beer, or his skis. Hopefully a combination of all three.

Jordan is a formally trained microscopist who came to the BIDC to chew bubble gum and crush imaging projects... and she's all out of bubble gum. She currently works closely with the Immunoprofiler Initiative on a many-color tissue slice project. 

In her spare time she takes more traditional, but no less stunning, pictures using her hand held cameras.

Max is the muscle we use when the proverbial boulder needs a push. When he's not running is own lab, the Immunoprofiler Initiative, or his other company, he pops his head into the BIDC to make sure we haven't left the oven on when we enter the lab.  

In his spare time... who are we kidding?
