Currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate working with Dr. Bob Prud'homme in Chemical and Biological Engineering, the focus of my research is developing multifunctional nanoparticles for medical imaging applications.  I also have experience with biofunctional nanomaterials, specifically protein-polymer composite nanofibers.  Building on these experiences, I am excited to pursue further innovation in Functional Soft Materials as an Assistant Professor in Chemical and Life Science at Virginia Commonwealth University.
