research overview

  • Professor Cogswell's research is in optics and digital signal processing aimed primarily at improving optical microscopes for biological imaging applications. Current research areas include development of novel engineered point spread functions and nonlinear processing applied to high resolution microscopes for super-resolution of continuous objects in all three dimensions, as well as increasing speed of image capture for live-cell imaging over time.
