Emphasis in Portable Sensors

My current projects focus on developing screen-printed electrochemical sensors for industrial, environmental, and forensic applications. I am also interested in using nanomaterials such as nanorods, nanotubes, and nanoparticles to enhance the performance of these sensors. My research group uses chromatographic methods such as GC and HPLC to compare the results from our sensors.
