Michael Grace is a PhD student in Optical Sciences. He and his wife Sarah have moved to Arizona from Connecticut, where Michael graduated with a BS in Physics from Yale while focusing in biophysics. After college, Michael was a researcher at the Yale School of Medicine, working on characterizing and optimizing state-of-the-art optical super-resolution microscopy techniques. He is excited by methods development and interdisciplinary collaboration and hopes to apply his training in optics to areas such as biological imaging and quantum information. He enjoys balancing his research with running, making music, and engaging with others about big life questions.
