Assistant Professor, Department of Physics, The University of Texas at Dallas

Chair: Robert Glosser
Topic: Electrochemical optoelectronics and biosensors

  • Established temperature and length dependence of DNA electrochemistry
  • NSF grant supported research for Scalable Nanomanufacturing with DNA
  • Collaborating with UT Southwestern to use DNA electronic devices to optimize cancer therapies
  • Developed the first light emitting electrochemical cells meeting the DOE lighting luminance benchmark
  • 2014 University of Texas System Regents’ Outstanding Teacher Award recipient
Research Assistant, Cornell University Department of Materials Science

Advisor: George G. Malliaras
Understanding and improving light emitting devices based on ionic transition metal complexes (iTMCs)

  • Executed direct measurement of the electric field distribution of light emitting electrochemical cells, distinguishing between models of operation and demonstrating a general method for solid-state ionics
  • Developed a lighting panel based on a cascaded architecture that demonstrates ease of fabrication, scalability and intrinsic fault tolerance (patent pending)
  • Demonstrated light-emitting nanofibers with sub-wavelength emission zones (patent pending)
  • Collaborated with Princeton University to develop iTMC devices of novel colors
  • Mentored six senior thesis students, three summer REU students, and one high school teacher
Postdoctoral Scholar, California Institute of Technology, Chemistry

Advisor: Jackie K. Barton
Electrochemical protein detection with DNA-modified electrodes

  • Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) postdoctoral fellowship
  • Developed multiplexed and miniaturized devices for rapid protein sensing
  • Demonstrated charge transport through 100-mer DNA
Visiting Scientist, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge (England)

Advisor: Richard H. Friend
Used Raman spectroscopy to study the degradation of iTMC devices by tracking the in situ formation and spatial location of luminescence-quenching compounds

Research Employee, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Advisor: Michael J. Winokur
Investigated the temperature dependence of the photoluminescence of light-emitting polymers
