Our research addresses topics in renewable energy, biosensing, and photochemistry at the single molecule level.
1. We are exploring new and innovative methods to increase the efficiency of microbial fuel cells. This technology is based on the catalytic reaction of electrogenic bacteria that converts biodegradable material and wastewater to electrical current. This project has the potential to produce, with high efficiency, clean energy from wastewater.
2. We are developing sensors to detect with high sensitivity unlabeled DNA using fluorescence spectroscopy. This project aims at developing cheap diagnostic tools for early disease detection.
3. We are also unraveling the photophysical properties of conjugated system when coupled to metal nanoparticles using ensemble and single molecule fluorescence microscopy. This hybrid structure will prove instrumental in developing high efficient solar cells and biosensing devices.
