Welcome to an invisible world
My passion with microscopy started since I was 12 years old when I received my first microscope as a gift from my parents. Might have been a toy but it could still magnify specimens up to 40 times. I still remember collecting anything I could possibly find from our garden, that would fit between the lens and the stage, and examining it under the microscope. That opened my eyes to a fascinating, previously invisible world, and established my passion for biology.
Microphotography has been a huge part of my academic journey. I have been taking photographs through a microscope for many years, trying to use those photographs to extract useful data and scientific conclusions. Recently one of my confocal images depicting a multinucleate spore of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi won the 4th place at the "Nikon small world 2020" Photomicrography competition.
