My overarching goal is to understand and control nanostructured material properties and their interaction with biological systems to develop effective biomedical tools for both basic and clinical applications. To that end, I lead a research group that focuses on engineering high-throughput miniaturized screening platforms to study nano-scale material properties and their implications on electrical, biochemical, optical, and biological phenomena. We are employing these tools for developing cell-based sensors for rapid identification of neurotoxins, multifunctional neural electrode coatings, and nucleic acid-based biosensor platforms.
