Teaching

NIH FAES: Imaging – From IF and FISH to Automated and Confocal Microscopy [link]
This workshop utilizes a combination of lectures and Q&A lab sessions in a “boot camp”-like approach for cell biologists who seek to learn imaging techniques used extensively in biomedical research.
Lead-instructor of the image processing & analysis boot camp, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, United States of America

NIH FAES: Image Processing and Analysis workshop [link]
Basic and advanced topics in image processing and analysis (e.g., fundamentals of digital images, object segmentation, Fourier transformation, volumetric and intensity measurements, co-localization analysis). Hands-on sessions with Fiji/ImageJ.

I am always happy to give talks, seminars, workshops, or lectures about optics, microscopy, image analysis, and data science as well as non-scientific career-related topics.
 
Here, you can find a list of science courses I am happy to teach:
 
  • Physics, Optics, and Microscopy (undergraduate and graduate courses)
  • Mathematics (undergraduate courses)
  • Microscope design and development
  • Advanced light microscopy
  • Imaging processing and analysis (for life scientists)
  • Machine learning and its application in microscopic image analysis
  • Statistical methods for large datasets
  • Data science (with Python/R)
  • Big Data
 
Non-scientific career-related topics I am happy to speak in-depth about during events, in particular, to early-career researchers:
 
  • Women in Science/Tech
  • Gender Empowerment
  • Defining and Pursuing Career Goals
  • Building a Career in Science
  • Navigating Your Career
  • Mentorship
  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Grit and Resilience
  • Networking
