Research Interests

Our research focuses on the design, fabrication and optimization of microscale devices for chemical analysis and synthesis.  We apply these systems towards biochemical, environmental, and nanomanufacturing problem solving.  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
