Research Interests

Photoacoustic Imaging Technologies

  • Our lab develops photoacoustic and ultrasound imaging technologies to elucidate fundamental knowledge of the behavior of the single cell and neural networks.  In addition, we engineer novel system designs for the clinical analysis and early diagnosis of cancer for use at the point of care.

Multiomic Biomarker Discovery

  • In collaboration with clinics, human-derived patient samples are being collected, tested, and analyzed to identify multiomic biomarkers related to illness.
