Research Area(s)

  • Development of chemically sensitive Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy of biomolecules
  • Synchrotron-based single-molecule measurements
  • Use of single-molecule fluorescence imaging to characterize the photophysical behaviour of individual molecules. Our ultimate objectives are to directly image individual molecules in biologically relevant environments (i.e. cells and other organisms) to elucidate important biological pathways
  • To develop and apply a new approach to diagnostic screening for medically important analytes. This new approach uses the principle of optical diffraction to identify and quantify metabolites in biological fluids
