My research is focused on the application of engineering principles to molecular diagnostics. Many of these improvements have served to increase throughput, reduce operational complexity, and/or minimize costs. However, they can also unlock fundamentally new functionalities, enabling clinicians and basic scientists to measure molecular and cellular analytical processes that were previously unobservable. This concept has led to the development of many new technologies and platforms focused on a broad menu of diseases, including HIV, TB, HBV, HCV, influenza, several types of cancer, and most recently SARS-CoV-2.
