BSc (UNB); MSc, PhD (Memorial)

Dr. Maria Kilfoil, an experimental physicist, uses optical and fluorescence microscopy tools to identify mechanical properties in biological and active materials such as cell cytoskeleton and DNA networks. She probes for characteristics of active (as opposed to thermally driven) microscopic motion and works to understand better how to the activity of enzymes and other machinery from the cell produce enhanced mechanical response.
