Dr. Alex Booth
Field Services Engineer
Alex completed his PhD studying organogenesis in the Drosophila embryo, utilising confocal and structured illumination (OMX) super-resolution microscopy. He then progressed to postdoctoral research where he made use of live-cell widefield fluorescence (Deltavision), confocal, super-resolution (OMX) microscopy alongside multi-photon optopharmacology and laser photoablation to probe the role of the cytoskeleton in mammalian and yeast mitosis. Whilst working as a postdoctoral researcher he was the point-of-contact for the laboratory Deltavision suite, engaging with engineers to implement upgrades and troubleshoot issues.
