Research Interests:

We develop spectroscopic coherent Raman microscopy methods and apply them to biological, biotechnology, and biomedical problems. We are currently working on improving speed, precision, and simplicity of broadband coherent Raman scattering (BCARS) microscopy techniques. On the biology side, we are applying these coherent Raman microscopy techniques to understand mechanism of viral replication in human cells, and lipid metabolism in C. elegans, and to characterize cell phenotype for cell manufacturing applications. On the biomaterials and pharmaceutics side, we use coherent Raman imaging to map chemical distributions and interactions. Here we also use a Raman-derived readout of THz-range dynamic processes to predict rates of reaction and degradation in condensed matter systems.
