Maia Lab

We pursue new ways to explore the wonderfully complex world of structural dynamics at the nanoscale. We are focused on the development of lensless imaging methods using X-rays, making use of X-ray free-electron lasers as a powerful coherent light source.

A common theme across many modern imaging techniques is the increasing complexity of the experimental setups. as well as the data analysis. Our lab focuses on both building new instrumentation, such as container free sample delivery for X-ray single particle imaging experiments, as well as creating the algorithms for analysing the resulting data. This co-design of all parts of the experiment is crucial to the success and requires a wide range of expertise, from biology to physicis and computer science, resulting in a highly collaborative and cross-disciplinary environment.
