About me

Hey! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Alister Burt, I'm a 28-year-old imaging scientist currently living in Oxford, UK. I develop image analysis software enabling in situ structural biology.

In my day job we use extremely noisy images from an electron microscope to understand biology. I currently work in David Barford 's group at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.

I also work with an amazing group of people on napari 🏝️, an extensible, interactive multidimensional image viewer for Python.

I'm generally excited about image analysis for cryo-electron tomography and care about sustainablility in scientific software development.
