Research summary

Current research focuses on the development of new electrochemical based sensors (based on diamond, nanotubes, graphene, nanoparticles) for a variety of different applications in healthcare, pharmaceutical analysis, environmental, and homeland security (often in collaboration with industry). Activities are also on-going in scanned probe techniques for nanoscale imaging of surface activity related to fuel cell catalysis, sensor activity; sensor device fabrication using lithographic techniques. The work is often coupled to microfluidic flow cell development for novel ways to deliver fluid flow in sensor device platforms and new analytical technique development for species analysis in solutions.
