Research Interests

My current research interests include the investigation into current and experimental biosensors, including the use of lasers and photonic techniques to create the next generation of miniaturized biosensors and analytical devices. I am interested in biomedical devices of all types, including the standardization and refinement of pulse oximeters, and the in-vivo measurement of a multitude of different substances in the peripheral circulation using novel applications of nanotechnology. Bioterrorism and countermeasures are a general interest of mine, along with biomaterials and their applications in my other research interests. Lastly, I am interested in the development and commercialization process for biomedical products, and hope to facilitate the flow of ideas between the academic and commercial worlds.
