My lab is exploring various facets of miniaturization and integration in biology and medicine, which includes the conception, engineering and utilization of novel micro and nanotechnologies for manipulating, stimulating and studying oligonucleotides, proteins, cells, and tissues.

The research foci comprise the development of novel scalable antibody microarrays for protein profiling and their use for biomarker discovery and early diagnosis of disease such as cancer; self-powered lab-on-a-chip for diagnostics at the point-of-care and low-cost thread-based devices for use in global health applications; microfluidic probes for brain slice perfusion and single cell manipulation; and nanogradients for studying neuronal cell navigation. The research in my lab is highly collaborative, and the lab is highly interdisciplinary with undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and staff from all areas of Science and Engineering.
