MISSION STATEMENT:

We are interested in multidisciplinary approaches to solving problems in biology and biomedicine, combining physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. To solve these problems, we use a broad range of tools, including synchrotron x-ray scattering and spectroscopy, quantitative optical microscopy, microfluidic systems, machine learning and ‘big data’ methods, x-ray and electron microscopy, and laser scanning confocal microscopy. The group is inherently interdisciplinary; our collaborators include not only bioengineers, but also medical doctors, biologists, physicists, chemists, and material scientists. Our current interests are in bacterial biofilms, immunity & antibiotic design, and fundamental science that enables new bioengineering opportunities.
