Seeing the invisible
A chemistry research project is making new advances in detecting cancer cells that currently can't be seen.
Read about this research
I'm fascinated by how molecules react to the light they absorb. My work uses lasers to capture the motion of molecules in real time.
I explore the ways that chemical engineering can address society's big challenges. My recent work looks at how we can use porous materials to improve efficiencies in energy conversion, storage and gas separations.
As an electrochemist, I study the ways in which society can develop more efficient fuel cells, batteries and other similar technologies.
