Write-up of research and development interests/focus, past and present goals:

RESEARCH INTERESTS The research interests are interdisciplinary including areas in Microbiology, Biochemistry, Nanotechnology and Electrochemistry. The final aim of all my research projects is to enable low cost detection and develop completely new Nano/Bio/chip interfaces and prototype systems for highly sensitive and selective sensors for onsite applications. The ongoing activities are primary focused on:   

  Point of care testing of cardiac biomarkers peptides using synthetic and artificial receptors (aptamers) and nanostructured electrochemical based biochips.

  Purification and characterization of surface biomarkers of water borne pathogens and receptor molecule generation and performing new kinds of optical and electrochemical immunoassays for Salmonella typhimurium.

  Hapten synthesds, antibody generation and biointerface development for low cost microfluidic based channels.
