Our group is focused on developing new technologies to address current and emerging grand challenges facing our society in the 21st century including global healthcare, food and water safety, biosecurity, and sustainable energy.  Our goal to create systems and platforms that are portable, easy to use and provide enhanced functionality over conventional technologies.  To achieve this, our research is very multidisciplinary, involving the utilization and integration of multiple technological platforms including micro-electrical-mechanical systems (MEMS), microfluidics, biosensors, nanotechnology, molecular biology, surface chemistry and electronics.
