Research Interests / Research Profile

  1. My main interests are in creating new instruments, sensors, and sensing systems. In particular, I am interested in creating equipment for organismal and ecological biology, as these fields are underequipped. My research experience ranges from biomedical systems to material characterization, from genomics to high-throughput phenotyping and precision agriculture, and everywhere in between.
