The goal of our research is to benefit the developing and developed world through the dissemination of new cost-effective and practical analytical tools. We work on multidisciplinary projects that deal with multiple aspects in the development of sensing and analytical technologies. We aim to solve current relevant issues in clinical diagnostics and environmental analysis, with a focus towards the development of deployable technologies. The main projects ongoing in our lab are listed below. However, we always welcome inquiries from prospective graduate students and collaborators to possibly start new projects that align with the lab expertise and goals. 

Project #1: Advancing SERS sensors towards point-of-need diagnostics





Machine learning

Project #2: Designing deployable sensing solutions for pollutants and pathogen identification

Biosensors embedded in hydrogels


Project #3: Raman scattering in art conservation
