Our research focus is the application of optical, fluorescence, and numerical modeling techniques to study biological systems and biomaterials, with an emphasis on interfaces and membranes:

Recent / Ongoing Projects

  • Behavior of lipid-monolayer coated microbubbles in ultrasound
  • Effects of long-range repulsion on membrane protein distributions
  • Optical diffraction from capillary waves at the air-water interface
