Research Interests

Our group is interested in synthesis of nanomaterials for developing nanosensors in biological and biomedical applications. Functionalized nanostructures are used in developing molecular sensors and catalyst for MRI imaging technology for early cancer detection. We have capabilities to synthesize carbon nanotubes and nanowires for variety of health monitoring and medical imaging. Our group is interested in working with multi-disciplinary research topics from synthesis of nanomaterials to fabrication of a nanodevice. We are also interested in integrated nanotechnology with CMOS based nanoelectronic technology.
