Nash’s research focuses on developing new tools for in vivo multiphoton microscopy of the mouse heart to study heart disease. Truly in vivo imaging of the heart has proved challenging, for one, because axial motion from heartbeat and respiration causes features to move in and out of focus during image acquisition. Nash is particularly interested in solving this problem by developing methods to acquire motion free images through a combination of active motion compensation and automated post-processing.
Nash is a senior studying biological engineering in the College of Engineering with a concentration in medical devices and imaging. After graduation, Nash hopes to work in industry. Nash is also a Cornell Tradition Fellow, West Campus Student Assistant, and EMT at Bangs Ambulance. In his spare time, Nash can be found enjoying outdoor activities like canoeing, mountain biking, and rock climbing.
