I have a research/teaching appointment in Agricultural Sciences and I am also Adjunct Associate Professor at North Carolina State University. Our international research program spans Colombia, the Bahamas, and China. We focus on development of sensors for rapid diagnostics. We are a member of the Global Alliance for Rapid Diagnostics (GARD).
I am a leader in the Institute of Biological Engineering (IBE) and Society of Photonics (SPIE), and have chaired conferences in both organizations numerous times over the last decade.

Extension and Outreach
Our group hosted a 4H summer camp for youth from marginalized communities in Florida and we are looking to build a similar Bioengineering camp at CU. We also developed and hosted a two day Plant Camp each Fall (ages 4-7) and contributed over 20 installations to local museums in Florida. We are looking to build a similar platform for Extension and Outreach in the Carolinas. Please contact us if you would like to team up!
