Research Interests

My research program brings a strong background in physical chemistry, in chemical and physical dynamics, in optical spectroscopy, and in electronic device physics to the understanding of molecular assembly and structure and to the building of nanoscale electronic devices. In addition I am interested in the fabrication of micro-scale and nanoscale devices from polymeric materials with applications to biochemistry and medicine.
