Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry


My background is in Telecommunications Engineering, Computer Science and Biophysics. My current research interests are novel 3D biological data visualisation tools (Virtual Reality), data processing (pre-processing and post-processing) and data analysis (including AI) for Super-resolution and other advanced microscopes.

I hold a Marie Curie cofund postdoctoral fellowship, participated by the European Commission and the Government of Catalonia. I am also a Trinity College postdoctoral society member.

This fellowship is very Technology Transfer intensive and it is being developed between the LeeLab (Deparment of Chemistry) and Visyon (VR Catalan company).

I love martial arts, and my idols are Newton, Einstein and Bruce Lee!

Oh, I forgot! I've just created my own Start-up company ViRe Instruments  S.L.
