Staff Bio

Kirstin C. Morton received her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from Indiana University in 2014 under the advisement of Prof. Lane Baker. Her graduate research focused on the development of pyrocarbon electrodes for use in multimodal electrochemical imaging to study in vitro neurotransmitter release. Dr. Morton's current research interests include the study of charge transport through DNA/RNA, nanofabrication of novel electrode geometries for bioanalytical sensing and pushing the limits of bio/abiotic interfaces.

Staff Bio

Adrian is originally from Cleveland, Ohio where he finished his PhD in Polymer Science.  At the University of Akron, he focused his studies on adhesion and friction phenomena in underwater environments.  He is a NRC postdoc working with Wyatt Vreeland in the Bioprocess Measurements group.  His interest is in the characterization of sub micron particles using orthogonal measurement techniques relevant to the biomanufacturing industry.  The ultimate goal is to use these techniques as a platform to correlate protein interactions, aggregation, and self-assembly processes with the molecular mechanisms that drive these phenomena.
