Our group has two thrust areas: (1) nanobiosensor studies of material behavior and sensor optimization; (2) applied studies of biological systems and on site (field) analysis.
Thrust group #1: This research group focuses on engineering new recognition/transduction schemes, improving mass transport/kinetics, patterning new hybrid materials, and development of smart sensor systems. These fundamental principles are used to engineer a variety of sensors using platforms such as flexible carbon circuits or plasmonic structures, among others. More details and specific examples are provided here
Thrust group #2: This research group engineers sensors for applications in planetary health, or in support of hypothesis driven research questions. The planetary health group works with stakeholders/users to develop participatory monitoring programs for food/water/public health. Hypothesis driven research questions are typically related to chemical signaling or smart diagnostics (i.e., theranostics). More details and specific examples are provided here
