Tonmoy received his BSc.(2004) in Physics from the University of Calcutta and MS (2006) in Physics from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee. After working in the semiconductor industry for a few years he joined Dr. Jonathan Petruccelli’s group at the State University of New York, Albany to finish his Ph.D. (2018) in the field of computational phase imaging. Thereafter, for his postdoctoral training (2018-2020), he joined the group of Dr. Reto Fiolka at UT Southwestern Medical Center in the Cell Biology department.
At UNM, his current interests involve developing microscopes for large scale imaging in tissues, particularly, light-sheet based fluorescence imaging tools. These next-generation microscopes are designed to investigate physiologically relevant samples by harnessing concepts from many different fields like physics, biology, computer-science and engineering.
