About Matthew L. Ferguson

Following two post-doctoral fellowships studying experimental biophysics at the Centre de Biochimie Structurale, in Montpellier, France, and at the National Institutes of Health, in Bethesda, MD, Dr. Matthew Ferguson joined the faculty of the Department of Physics at Boise State University in late 2013. He earned his doctorate in physics from the University of Maryland and his B.S. in physics & mathematics from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. Dr. Ferguson's current research emphasis is in the area of fluorescence microscopy, specifically the development of dynamic in vivo single molecule imaging at or below the diffraction limit. He considers himself an experimentalist, and an underlying theme in his research has been the interface between dynamical systems and thermodynamics in both physical and biological systems and the combination of physics, computer simulation and multidimensional data analysis to interpret the results of his experiments in a straightforward way, turning information into knowledge about a physical or biological system.
