Currently, our research interests focus on the understanding, characterization and development of chemical sensors for bioanalytical applications. Our main interest is to develop an electrochemical sensor for the detection of cancer biomarkers in ultra-low volume samples via nanoparticles as the label. In this direction our aim is to integrate ultra-sensitive polymeric-based sensors into microchip platforms. We are also interested in studying the interactions at the interface of biomolecules and nanomaterials, the synthesis of nanoparticles and nanostructures, and the development of biocompatible materials for analytical devices. Our research interests have been extended to optical sensors where we use photoactive compounds to create sensors with the capability to be controlled for biomedical applications.
