Anne Plochowietz is developing new, state-of-the-art microsystems technologies for manipulating and analyzing nano- and micro-objects in the Electronic Materials and Devices Lab. She is interested in leveraging scalable and high-throughput optical technologies for micro-assembly, biomedical, and printing applications. Prior to joining PARC, Anne developed novel single-molecule fluorescence microscopy techniques to study gene regulation processes in live bacteria, such as DNA repair, and transcription initiation. She also helped to implement advanced two-photon microscopy techniques for neuronal imaging in living mice. Dr. Plochowietz earned her Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Condensed Matter Physics from the University of Oxford, and B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Goettingen. She has authored multiple publications in the fields of single-molecule biophysics, molecular cell biology, and nanotechnology. In her free time, Anne enjoys hiking, biking, and playing soccer with friends.
