Assistant Professor of Analytical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry
Our research efforts are focused on the development of plasmonic structures and nanoparticle assemblies with tunable optical properties and surface plasmon resonance-based sensing and spectroscopy platforms, particularly for biomolecule analysis. Our projects can be divided into three main areas:
• Tunable plasmon-based sensing and spectroscopy platforms based on structural control and organized nanoparticle assembly
The broad nature of the multi-disciplinary research requires methods and tools from analytical chemistry, surface chemistry, biochemistry, materials science, nano/microfabrication, optics, spectroscopy, and microscopy. In addition to our focus on sensing and spectroscopy, our research will impact many areas of science and engineering using localized and propagating plasmons, including micro- and nano-scale device fabrication, nano-scale microscopy, nanolithography, solar energy conversion, and sensor development.
