Susan studied Physics at Oxford, followed by a PhD at Cambridge, where she studied strongly correlated materials using transmission electron microscopy. She continued her study of these materials in Los Alamos National Laboratory, where she was a Seaborg Postdoctoral Fellow. Following this she decided to explore a fresh area, and joined the group of Rainer Heintzmann at King’s College London, where she worked on limiting phototoxicity in fluorescence microscopy and, analysis techniques for super-resolution localisation microscopy. In 2011 Susan was appointed to a Royal Society University Research Fellowship at King’s. She is the developer of Bayesian analysis of Blinking and Bleaching, a method for extracting information from highly dense data which enabled high speed localisation microscopy to be carried out. More recently she has focused on applications of localisation microscopy, correlative methods, and the fundamental limitations of the technique.
