Dr. Field earned his PhD in Physics in 2010 under the advisement of Prof. Jeff Squier at the Colorado School of Mines. Dr. Field’s dissertation was concentrated on applying ultrafast laser pulse shaping, beam shaping, and optical engineering to optimize various aspects of multiphoton microscopy for biological imaging. In particular, he focused on shaping laser pulses to mitigate photobleaching in two-photon excited fluorescence, developed several novel platforms for femtosecond laser pulse shaping and characterization, and worked with a team of graduate students to develop multifocal multiphoton microscopy methods. In 2011, Dr. Field moved to University of California, San Diego and worked under Prof. David Kleinfeld to develop a multiphoton microscope with a 1 cm x 1 cm field of view for imaging both hemispheres of cortex in awake, behaving mice. In 2012, Dr. Field moved to Prof. Randy Bartel’s lab in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Colorado State University, where he has continued to develop novel microscopy platforms, including a super-resolution imaging system, a fluorescent holographic imaging system, and continued optimization of multiphoton laser scanning microscopy systems. Dr. Field joined the MIN in August of 2015.
