Research and Creative Activities

My research lab, the Spectral Pathology Lab, is focused on developing the instrumentation, methodology and computation to create new spectroscopic approaches to improve patient care.

The lab is broadly focused on the following three themes:

1) Guide tissue diagnostic and prognostic decisions where current clinical tools and techniques are lacking.

2) Gain new biochemical insight in to key cell and tissue processes that will improve our understanding of disease.

3) Develop the methodology, instrumentation, software and computational approaches to make spectroscopic approaches accessible and useful for non-experts.
