Our research is at the interface of materials chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biophysical chemistry and nanotechnology.One aspect of her research program focuses on how situational cues in academic, organizational, and group environments affect people’s cognition, motivation, performance, and physiology, with an eye toward intervention.
Can nanoparticles sequester or deliver small molecules across interfaces?
How do these processes depend, if at all, on nanoparticle size, shape, aggregation state, and surface chemistry?
A diverse range of projects are currently pursued in the group: Inorganic Nanoparticle Fabrication and Functionalization."Finely-divided metals" such as gold, silver and copper have been known since Roman times for their brilliant colors.
These brilliant colors arise fundamentally from the interaction of light with the conduction band electrons in these nanoscale metal particles, producing what is known as a plasmon resonance at particular optical frequencies.
Nanorods, compared to nanospheres, have multiple plasmon bands whose position and intensity are intimately connected to the size, shape, degree of aggregation, and local dielectric environment of the nanorods.
The absorption and scattering of light by gold and silver nanorods can be tuned throughout the visible and near-infrared portions of the electromagnetic spectrum.
He is co-PI with Zak Kohane of the next generation platform, Patient-centered Information Commons BD2K Center of Excellence, which will integrate data sourced not only from the EHR, but also social medial, “omic” inputs, radiology reports, and environmental feeds and co-Investgiator on the PCORI-supported Accessible Research Commons for Health (ARCH) program, both of which are based at DBMI.
