My primary research interest is focused on design and development of nano-sensors that can "smell" using a canine-inspired model. These sensors can be applied to various applications and specifically for medical screening and diagnostics. In addition, to make these sensors applicable to wearable devices, my group also investigate the design/fabrication of flexible energy devices and systems.
