Research Interest

The Nanobioscience lab at UMass Dartmouth focuses on the synthesis and the applications of bioinspired nanomaterials, using techniques such as vapor phase deposition, and synthesis in solution. We are also interested in studying the interactions of nanostructures with biological materials, both in vitro and in vivo. Some of the applications include the development of coatings for implants, drug delivery, real-time chemical and biological sensors and nanobioelectronics. The students working in my lab will have an opportunity to gain research experience working in multi-disciplinary fields such as chemical synthesis, cell culture, mechanical and electrical characterization techniques.
