| I am currently an
Assistant Research Scientist in the Biomedical Engineering
Department at the University of Michigan. I currently work with Professor Alan
J. Hunt, Professor Raoul
Kopelman and Professor
Roy Clarke. My main research interests are fabrication and
application of magnetic microspheres and nanoparticles.

Inventors Competition for "Rapid
Detection and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Bacteria."
7, 2007 - physicsworld.com wrote an article, "Tiny Sphere
Detects Bacteria", on research conducted in Professor Raoul Kopelman's Lab.
26, 2007 - The University of Michigan did a
press release on the single bacterial cell detection paper.
26, 2007 - A paper that I authored - Single bacterial cell detection with
nonlinear rotational frequency shifts of driven magnetic microspheres
- has been published in the Applied Physics Letters.
