Christina
Porter

Christina is from Portland Oregon and completed her B.A. degree in Physics at Reed College in 2013. She is interested in novel imaging techniques, especially with applications in biology and chemistry. She received an M.S.E. degree in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University in 2014, where her research was on mid-infrared microscopy capable of sub-wavelength resolution using a super-oscillation lens, for application to biological imaging and spatially resolved spectroscopy. She joined the KM group as a physics Ph.D. student in the fall of 2014 and is now working with the ultrafast imaging team. Outside of science, Christina enjoys tango dancing, horseback riding, traveling in Europe, watching her cat chase lasers, and never hiking.
