Michael J. Stringer

Principal, DataScope Analytics LLC


I was born in Colorado in 1982, and attended the University of Colorado at Boulder. After a stint studying Mechanical Engineering there, I became particularly interested in single molecule biophysics and switched to the Engineering Physics program, which I graduated from in 2004. Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Physics at Northwestern University, under the research supervision of Dr. Luis Amaral.
