Thank you for clicking on me. I am a theoretician, but in order to find a job I learned a bit of experimental fluorescence as well. I have written a book on FRET (Fluorescence with Resonance Energy Transfer) with a former postdoc and a former student. I have roughly 34 referred papers, eight invited chapters, and many published abstracts.
