Our research focusses on developing integrative photonics solutions to complex problems in biological research and medical diagnosis. The research in our group is highly inter-disciplinary at the interface of physical chemistry, materials science, and biology. The primary aim is to harness the potent combination of the engineered plasmonic nanoprobes and label-free plasmon-enhanced vibrational spectroscopy for diagnosis, imaging, manipulation, and control of biological structure and function. Our work involves molecular spectroscopy and imaging, fabrication of nanomaterials, developing optical and microscopic methods (label-free, light-sheet, Raman, fluorescence/confocal, and others) for studying biological processes and developing platforms for medical diagnostics.
