  • About

    Professor Ogilvie studies the dynamics of biological systems over a diverse range of time and length-scales using the combined tools of nonlinear spectroscopy and microscopy. At the nanometer scale, her group uses ultrafast nonlinear spectroscopy to explore the role of protein dynamics in evolution’s search for protein structures that meet the challenges of biological function. These methods complement existing X-ray and NMR techniques by accessing a new time window that encompasses the fastest processes in biology, such as energy transfer. Her group also employs single molecule spectroscopy to uncover dynamics hidden in ensemble measurements and to address the more complex domain of protein-protein interactions. On yet a larger length-scale, the group is developing novel microscopies that, without the need for artificial labels, exploit molecular contrast to elucidate the role of proteins in orchestrating cellular processes.
