Research interests

My past, current, and future research aims to improve the workflow of the selection and characterization of small molecule-binding aptamers towards the ultimate goal of developing both in vitro and in vivo biosensors that link important metabolite concentrations to readily detectable signals for high throughput screening and diagnostics.
