Research Interest:
Chip-based biomedical micro and nano-integrated systems for sensing, diagnosis, and therapeutics; micro and nano-scale biosensors for cells, proteins, DNA: Biomimetically Inspired Engineered Systems

Integration of biology and engineering disciplines for biomedical sensing, imaging and improved medical devices: Biosensors, Intelligent Medical Devices utilizing machine learning, artificial intelligence and expert systems to improve functionality and performance

PDMS-PMMA Polymer-based microfludic and silicon micromachined chips for infectious agent detection and molecular, biophysical study of DNA-DNA, DNA-Protein and Protein;Protein interactions. Single molecule imaging and image analysis to study cell:pathogen interactions, DNA:Protein interactions. Fluorescent Microscopy (molecular beacons for intracellular gene expression analysis), Atomic Force Microscopy (transcription factor screening, DNA aptamers, viral capsid biomechanics and assembly)

Microbial and cellular engineering: Use of intracellular bacteria (L. monocyogenes) and viruses for improved sensing of intracellular chemicals (free radicals, NO), proteins and nucleic acids and targeted drug-delivery. Study and engineering of bacterial molecular responses to environmental signals.

Stimuli responsive polymers such as hydrogels for development of micro/nano-devices for drug delivery and biomedical sensing applications. Functionalization and patterning of biosensor surfaces and assembly of biologically-inspired nanodevices by using DNA hybridization and synthetic peptides/proteins with known ligands/receptors.
