Profile/About Me

Dr. Carlos D. Garcia received his B.S. in Biochemistry and Ph.D. in Chemistry from the National University of Cordoba (Argentina) in 1996 and 2001, respectively. From 2002 to 2004, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Mississippi State University and Colorado State University. In September of 2004, he joined the faculty at UTSA where he reached the rank of Professor in 2014. In Aug 2015, he joined Clemson University. In 2018 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry. His group is focused on the study of interactions of proteins with nanostructured surfaces and their use in analytical chemistry. Additionally, he is developing microfluidic devices to monitor biologically active compounds.

Research Interests

Our group is dedicated to advance the understanding and applicability of microfluidic devices, nanomaterials, and electrochemical processes. We are focused on the development of integrated analytical approaches that span from highly specialized instrumentation to simple paper-based devices. Applications of these projects include the quantification of biomedically-relevant analytes, the design of biocatalysts, and the implementation of artificial intelligence to address analytical problems.
