Research Interests: Our lab specializes in the development of new measurements capable of resolving key processes on the nano- to microscale in biology and medicine to aid in the design of more sensitive diagnostics and effective therapeutics. Using nanoparticle-based imaging approaches, we study the biomolecular and biophysical aspects of fundamental processes that contribute to the onset and progression of disease. We have a particular interest in pulmonary diseases (e.g. asthma, cystic fibrosis) where we aim to understand the mucosal airway microenvironment in order to develop nanoparticle-based therapies and biosensor devices.
