Welcome to Prof. Colin Sheppard's Group


Welcome to Professor Sheppard’s group! Prof. Colin Sheppard is an internationally renowned scientist in physical optics and microscopy, and he has extended expertise in the areas of confocal microscopy, near-field microscopy, interference microscopy, information theory of resolution, 3D image modeling and reconstruction, scattering and imaging, beam propagation, and diffraction theory etc.

There are currently 3 research fellows and 8 PhD students in his group carrying out diverse projects. The main research activities can be software based, for example: theory and modeling of diffractive optics, beam propagation, imaging through scattering media and image formation theories; or hardware based, for example: designing and building new imaging modalities for biomedical research; or a combination of both.
