My research interests are focused on the use of metal-enhanced fluorescence approaches to address important clinical problems. In particular, I am developing Microwave-Accelerated Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence (MAMEF) assays for detection and characterization of common microbial pathogens, and its application to the clinical setting.
