I have a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Arizona. My research experience is centered in two topics: purification of biomolecules and bionanotechnology. Sometimes I perform simulation of chemical and biochemical processes.

Associate Professor of Chemistry, Lehigh University. Science Advisor, Nanoptek. Research involves i) application of scanning force microscopy to direct measurements and imaging of intermolecular forces between organic functional groups, bio-molecules, and nano-materials (such as carbon nanotubes); ii) development of new techniques for direct manipulation of single molecules (force spectroscopy, such as magnetic or dielectrophoretic tweezers) to understand and exploit intermolecular interactions in soft matter; iii) probing nano-mechanics of thin films; iv) next-generation DNA sequencing technology.
