In the Light Microscopy facility, John learned the ins and outs of operating microscopes using state-of-the-art software. He also trained new users how to operate the microscopes. Additionally, John incorporated some technical writing into his experience as an intern-- a career path which he would love to pursue. 

There's like, ten different types of software in there-- multiple for each microscope. And we have to navigate all the problems that come across.
