Johanna Traegaardh

Johanna Trägårdh is the leader of the workpackage focused on label-free imaging with chemical contrast. Her research is focused on instrument and method development for imaging and spectroscopy applications. Specifically, for studying light matter interaction at the nanoscale and bio-imaging.
As a postdoc at the University of Bristol she developed an instrument that combined NSOM with crossed beam spectral interferometry for characterising ultrafast light propagation in photonics structures. As a postdoc at the Centre for Biophotonics at the University of Strathclyde, she developed excitation sources and methods for bioimaging. This included e.g. a source for third harmonic generation (THG) imaging in thick brain tissue. She was also part of the team developing the Mesolens, which is a novel instrument for (confocal) imaging over a large field of view with subcellular resolution.
