  Our research focuses on developing novel analytical and bio-analytical tools for environmental, biological, and chemical analysis. We explore development of microsphere and polymer monolith based bio-assemblies as reactive surfaces for target binding. We intend to integrate these surfaces with microfluidics to create portable detection systems. We further explore use of sound waves in microfluidic systems as diagnostic tools for various infectious and non-infectious diseases.
