Research Interests

We design, model, build and apply tools to address complex biochemical and environmental chemical problems.  Most of this involves microfluidics, a field that builds the chemical analogues to integrated circuit chips.  For example, we have built “lab-on-a-chip” devices to detect antimalarial drug adulteration, measure disease biomarkers in biological fluids, synthesize genes and detect toxins in the environment. Our work is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative.

We have active research projects in the following areas:

  lab-on-a-chip technology - fabrication and implementation of analytical instruments in the microchip format

  nanomaterial-enabled sensors

  nanostructure and surface chemistry to enable droplet microfluidics

  molecular recognition technologies - high selectivity sorbents for separations and sensing

  development of miniaturized, automated assays for clinical chemistry applications

  development of microscale reactors for nanomaterial synthesis

  using semiconductor nanoparticles as components of assay systems
