Personal profile

Research interests

The research interests of Dr Lynn Paterson's group fall under the broad theme of biophotonics. We use the force of light to pick up and move microscopic particles (optical manipulation), microfluidics, imaging and nanoparticle sensors and apply these techniques to the life sciences in areas such as biosensing, biodiscovery and the development of biomedical devices.

Dr Paterson's group website can be found here.

We are based in the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering at Heriot Watt University in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences

Biography

Lynn Paterson is an assistant professor in the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering and joined Heriot-Watt University in July 2007 as an RCUK Academic Fellow.  Lynn has a BSc from Glasgow University and was awarded her PhD from St Andrews University.  She worked as a post doctoral research fellow at St Andrews, on projects ranging from all-optical cell sorting to photoporation of mammalian cells to assist transfection.  Lynn's current research interests are using optical forces to isolate single biological cells, optical tweezers, microfluidics with integrated optics, nanoparticle sensors, Raman microspectroscopy and superresolution imaging.
