Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Group

The Bio-interfacial Engineering and Diagnostics Group’s research focuses on quantitative characterization of biomolecular interactions, with technological connections to diagnostics for medical and fundamental biology applications. The group seeks to dissect the fundamental equilibrium and kinetic aspects of biomolecular reactions at surfaces and in solution, elucidate the role played by the molecular organization, and apply this understanding to advance bioanalytical technologies.


Transportation Planning

Hybrid Nanomaterials Laboratory

Our research investigates the transport phenomena in new and novel classes of nanostructured hybrid materials that have promise for optoelectronic and thermoelectric energy conversion. Our group has expertise in colloidal synthesis, advanced characterization, and device implementation of such materials.


clean room

NYU NanoFab Cleanroom

Home to world-class micro- and nanofabrication and metrology tools, which meet or exceed the demands of academic and industry users alike. With over ~ 2000 sq. ft. of Class 1000 space, the NanoFab is appropriately equipped to meet the present and future demands for device fabrication.

Pinkerton Research Group

Focuses on developing responsive soft materials for biomedical applications. The group uses tools from chemical and materials engineering, nanotechnology, chemistry and biology to create functional soft materials via scalable synthetic processes and to understand the material behavior in biological systems.

Lazers in a lab

Polymer Light Scattering and Light-Induced Crystallization Laboratory

We investigate the ways that laser light can passively and actively interact with materials. We use depolarized light scattering to passively characterize the micron-scale grain structure of block copolymer materials, which influences their viscoelastic, adhesive, optical and electrical properties. We use lasers to actively induce the nucleation of supersaturated solutions, providing novel ways of controlling crystal size, morphology and polymorphism.
