My name is Robert Prevedel, I am a group leader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. The focus of my research at EMBL is to develop novel imaging tools and methods for biological and neuroscience research, with an emphasis on non-invasive techniques that allow imaging of cellular processes in deep tissue, where the effects of light scattering dominate and prevent the use of conventional microscopy approaches.
Previously, I was a senior postdoctoral researcher at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories (MFPL) and the Institute for Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna, Austria. My research in the lab of Alipasha Vaziri was concerned with developing high-speed imaging methods for neuroscience application, in particular for large-volume and high-speed optical interrogation of neuronal circuits based on calcium imaging. For this position, I was funded through the VIPS program of MFPL, as well as a Marie Curie IIF fellowship of the European Union.
Before, I was at the Institute of Quantum Computing (IQC) in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. My research there was mainly focused on quantum information experiments with single and entangled photons and the development of quantum-inspired imaging tools. For this I was funded through a Erwin-Schroedinger Fellowship from the Austrian Science Fund and a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Ontario Ministry for Research and Innovation. My supervisor was Kevin Resch, who heads the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information group at IQC.
I did both my MSc and PhD in the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information group of Anton Zeilinger at the University of Vienna. During my MSc, funded by an Joint Study Fellowship from the University of Vienna, I had the pleasure to experience Australian research and culture at the Quantum Technology Lab run by Andrew White at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
