Our research is focused on developing new materials and integrating these into biosensing platforms using rapid and benchtop methods. We combine methods such as electrodeposition, craft cutting, polymer-induced wrinkling, screen printing and electrospinning to create multiscale materials that are tunable in morphology and in a wide range of lengthscales. We are interested in translating this structural tunability to functional tunability for creating low voltage lysis devices, low current on-chip magnetic separation devices, and ultra-sensitive bioanalytical sensors.
