Training Computation Lenses for analysing nanoscale phenomena
Prof Duane Loh did a Bachelor of Science at Harvey Mudd College in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, before doing a PHD in Computational Physics at Cornell University, and subsequently, his post-doctoral research at Stanford Unviersity. Later, he was a LKY postdoc fellow at the National University of Singapore, and currently an assistant professor in Physics and Biology. Since his time at Cornell, Duane has been developing algorithms to probe nanoscale phenomena by examining their signatures, which are hidden in noisy, incomplete and heterogeneous X-ray diffractive datasets. These algorithms were applied during his postdoctoral appointment at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory to investigate airborne aerosols, tiny viruses, paramagnetic aggregates, and supercooled water using X-ray free-electron lasers.
