RESEARCH INTERESTS
Our group’s research interests are primarily focused on the development and validation of biophotonic medical devices and sensors for application in clinical or point-of-care diagnostics. We conduct research to create novel materials and photonics devices that can reversibly sense a wide range of biomarkers in biological samples at nano/micromolar sensitivity. The applications of these biophotonic technologies are in wearable devices, minimally-invasive sensors with subcutaneous probes, and implantable chips for prolonged biomarker monitoring.
