Mini Bio

Research Interests: Electrochemistry/Environmental/Analytical Chemistry


My research group focusses on the study and development of synthetic and biomass polymer based materials and study of their interaction with other molecules of interest. Our objectives are to employ these functional materials for i) target compounds (e.g. biopesticides, antioxidants, flavor agents) microencapsulation, ii) water pollutants removal, iii) low cost and miniaturized integrated electrochemical (bio)chemical sensor for on field analysis of environmental (mainly water and air) and point of care analysis of biological samples, iv) analytical extraction phases, extraction and separations. Examples of materials studied in our group are cellulose nanocrystals/nanofibers, numerous types of synthetic organic polymers, lignins, and biochars.

Research Key Words: Electrochemistry, Biosensors, Responsive Polymers and Hydrogels, Cellulose Nanocrystals, Analytical Separations
