My research interests lie at the intersection of science and engineering in developing and applying advanced optical techniques towards the analysis of chemical and biological specimens. Over the last decade, the availability of high-performance, high-speed lasers and detectors has greatly expanded; thus, offering exciting possibilities towards developing new optical modalities for studying light-matter interactions and to further apply these techniques towards real-world biological and medical problems. My specific interests encompass a variety of topics, such as:
Post-doctoral fellowships are available through the National Research Council (NRC) Research Associateship Program (RAP-- http://sites.nationalacademies.org/pga/rap/). The Biomaterials group is constantly updating the list of Research Opportunities. We are a very interdisciplinary group composed of chemists, chemical engineers, biomedical engineers, electrical engineers, biologists, physicists, and more. We are looking for prospective postdocs with the following background:
The application process is highly competitive with application deadlines February 1 and August 1. Your submitted application package will include:

N.B.: NIST administrates its own NRC-RAP fellows; thus,
there are some differences between the benefits and process for NRC fellows at
NIST and other institutions. These differences are highlighted throughout the
RAP program webpages.
