Liam Collard joined CBN in 2019 as part of the Nanobright project. His research is focused on devloping low invasivity probes to investigate deep brain regions based on adaptive optics and plasmonic structures.

Before joining CBN, he obtained a PhD at the University of Leicester (UK) in 2017 with a thesis titled "Shape transformations in optically trapped particles and minimal surfaces: An experimental and theoretical study". Afterwards, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Nottingham (UK) where he worked with Raman tweezers to investigate curvature-mediated lipid sorting in single lipid vesicles.
