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.

ChE Associate Professor Edgar Goluch created the company QSM Diagnostics to help diagnose bacterial infections in animals quickly which would allow for faster treatments.
Research Scientist at the Wyss Institute and current ChE graduate student Daniel Wiegand's research was featured in the ACS Synthetic Biology article "Establishing a Cell-Free Vibrio natriegens Expression System" for using super fold GFP as a read-out for tweaking a multitude of parameters in order to retain sustained protein expression in the cell-free reaction over a long period of time.
