Biography

Joined the Chemical Engineering Department in Fall 2010.

The primary focus of our research is the development of detection strategies that are tailored for the micro and nanoscale, with emphasis on biological systems. We work at size scales ranging from single molecules to single cells. Applications of this research range from personalized medicine to environmental monitoring. We also have expertise in electrochemistry and fabrication of integrated microfluidic systems.

Education

  • BS (Chemical Engineering) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2003
  • MS (Mechanical Engineering) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 2005
