Background & Research Interest
Our current research focus is in the field of water-soluble, carbon-based nanoparticles (carbon dots). Our goals include modifying the nanoparticle surface to investigate interesting chemistry and incorporate sensing capabilities. We have previously investigated monolayer-protected metallic nanoparticles and colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots).
