  • My lab specializes in physiological sensing for bioenvironmental, agricultural, and biomedical research. We focus on providing facile methods for ‘tuning’ sensors and biosensors based on hypothesis driven research needs, rather than constructing hypotheses within the framework of existing technology. Applications include bioregenerative water recovery on earth and in space, emerging contaminants and ecotoxicology, climate change and developmental biology, rhizosphere-root transport, and bioenergetics/cell signaling in cancer, diabetes, and epilepsy research. In collaboration with experts in the fine arts, we use the ‘design by performance’ approach to promote informal science education, improving the communication of research findings to the public through interactive media.
