Mehta received his Ph.D. in optics at the National University of Singapore. His Ph.D. research led to elegant mathematical models and new experimental approaches for label-free imaging of cellular morphology. He then joined the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole as a Human Frontier Science Program Fellow, where he developed novel imaging and computational methods for characterizing molecular order below the diffraction limit. His research revealed the dynamic flow and orientation of molecular assemblies in live cells. At CZ Biohub, Mehta and his team are developing integrated imaging and computational technologies to measure physical properties of biological systems with increasing precision, resolution, and throughput. These computational microscopy technologies exploit diverse light-matter interactions and algorithms. In collaboration with CZ Biohub’s projects, platforms, and partners, these technologies enable data-driven discovery of biological mechanisms and therapeutic opportunities.
