We are an electrochemistry group working on fundamental electrochemistry and electroanalytical sensors. A central goal of the group's research is the development and use of powerful analytical and physical chemistry tools (e.g., optical microscopy, microfabricated nanoelectrodes, nanopores, etc.) and methods to probe and better understand the physical and chemical behavior of single molecules and nanoparticles at the electrochemical interface.
