Welcome to the Andersson Lab

Fall 2017: Open position for a postdoctoral scholar. Details here.

Our lab centers on the broad area of systems and control theory with current focus on the application areas of:

  • Nanobioscience and nanotechnology

The ability to investigate the dynamics of single molecules and of the interactions between molecules both in vitro and in living cells is a critical component for continued progress in molecular biology. We are investigating novel methods for rapid imaging of samples and for studying dynamics in systems with nanometer-scale phenomena with ongoing projects in single molecule tracking in fluorescence microscopy and high-speed imaging in atomic force microscopy.

  • Robotics

Stochastic effects in both sensors and actuators are a pervasive feature in robotics. We are developing methods for the autonomous control of robots evolving in complex, real-world settings and subject to such disturbances. Ongoing projects are centered on multi-agent systems and perception and navigation using sparsely sampled data.
