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 research directions of our research program are listed below. 

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

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

Project #3: Raman scattering in art conservation
