Research in my group involves the development of analytical techniques (including optical and electrochemical sensing) for the characterization of nanomaterials, their surface properties, and their interactions with biomolecules. Characterization of nanomaterial physico-chemical properties is carried out from two perspectives; namely, how these properties play a role in the potential harmful effects of nanomaterials to environmental and biological systems, and how they influence the potential use of nanomaterials as therapeutic and/or drug delivery agents.
