Colin Ophus received his PhD in Materials Engineering from the University of Alberta in Canada. He was then awarded a full Postdoctural Research Fellowship from the National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. This postdoctoral research was performed jointly between the National Center for Electron Microscopy at Berkeley Lab and the MSE Department at the University of California Berkeley. He then became a project staff scientist at NCEM, and is currently a Molecular Foundry research scientist in NCEM. Dr. Ophus works primarily on developing methods, algorithms and codes for simulation, analysis and instrument design for high resolution and scanning transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM and STEM). He provides computational support to facility users for quantitative analysis of electron micrographs. In 2018, he was awarded a Department of Energy Early Career Award to study the application of Quantum Metrology to Electron Microscopy.
