Our research involves the development of miniaturized technologies for analytical and diagnostic applications through the use and combination of microfluidics and optics. We pursue the development of novel technologies for user-based applications of high socio-economic relevance and technologies with unique abilities that facilitate scientific advances in chemistry, biology and medicine. We approach technology development through the study of fundamental problems at the micro- and nanoscale, computational modelling and experimentation. Our research is inherently multidisciplinary and is particularly applicable to label-free sensing requiring real-time measurements in situ.
