RESEARCH

Research in our group lies at the interface of chemistry, materials science, and nanotechnology. We are primarily interested in the questions related to the development of advanced materials and smart devices for improving environment, health, and lifestyle. Broadly, our work is focused on four interconnected research topics:

Nanomaterials
Synthesis, characterization, and applications of metal, metal oxide, and composite nanostructures. LINK

Chemical Sensors
Fabrication of mass-sensitive and electronic devices for fast and selective monitoring of various chemical species in gaseous and solution phases. LINK

Polymers and Nanocomposites
Exploiting the chemical interface to enhance physical properties of organic polymers and resins reinforced with inorganic nanoparticles. LINK

Biomedical Materials and Diagnostics
Developing new biomaterials for bone tissue engineering applications and biomimetic devices for successful detection and quantification of bioanalytes, proteins, and cells. LINK
