Erik Olsén

Doctoral Student at Nano and Biophysics

I started my PhD in the Division of Biological Physics in August 2018 under the supervision of Fredrik Höök. The main objective of my research projects is to further develop label-free microscopy methods such as optical holography in the context of cellular imaging and single particle tracking. I primarily work with developing/optimising optical microscopes and creating image analysis software using traditional image analysis and deep learning. I hope to be able to improve the amount of information that it is possible to extract from biological samples without introducing unwanted distortions to the samples, with the final aim of investigating how various diseases such as Alzheimer’s and ALS affect the internal cellular mass transport.

I have a BSc in Engineering Physics and a MSc in Applied Physics from Chalmers University of Technology. Prior to my PhD studies I worked part time in Eva Olsson Group at Chalmers University of Technology, where my research project involved investigations of the plasmonic properties of metallic nanoparticles using electron microscopy in combination with numerical simulations. My master thesis concerned how the interaction between plasmonic nanoparticles affects their emission spectra and directivity of emission, where the experimental part was conducted at Monash University under the supervision of Joanne Etheridge and Eva Olsson.
