Kevin Takasaki joined the Neural Coding team in 2016 to develop and implement optical and computational methods for advanced imaging. Prior to joining the Allen Institute, Kevin was a postdoctoral fellow in Electrical Engineering in Jason Fleischer’s research group at Princeton where he worked on applying computational methods to engineer new approaches to microscopy. He received his PhD in Biophysics from Harvard where he trained in the Sabatini lab in the Department of Neurobiology and developed superresolution two-photon imaging using stimulated emission depletion to study correspondence of synaptic structure and function.
Kevin earned his undergraduate degrees in Physics and Math from MIT.
