Research Interests

Nanomedicine is ushering in an era of individualized therapy. To realize this vision, we not only need advances in nanomaterials, but also new tools to study and optimize interactions at the bio-nano interface. My research combines high throughput nanoparticle synthesis with quantitative imaging & multi-scale modeling to optimize nanotherapeutics for cancer and antibiotic-resistant infections. My areas of expertise include: intravital microscopy, magnetic resonance imaging, optical instrumentation, nanoparticle synthesis and characterization, drug delivery, and animal models of cancer.
