Research Interests:
Our group conducts cross-disciplinary research aimed at the development and application of microfluidic technology for high-throughput biology. In particular we are exploiting new advances in large scale microfluidic integration to address bottlenecks in genomics, proteomics, and cell biology. This work naturally lies at the interface of the physical sciences, engineering, and biology. Therefore, students will have the opportunity to work in a highly interdisciplinary environment and to collaborate with researchers from varied academic departments and with industry.


Current Areas of Research:

Three areas of research are single cell manipulation and analysis, new methods for precise and sensitive diagnostics, and technologies for proteomics and genomics. A variety of research projects are being pursued in each of these areas.
