Research Interests

My research interests focus on the application of analytical detection techniques for chemical and biochemical sensor development. I am particularly interested in the creation of novel materials that have tuneable electronic or photonic properties. These materials can be utilised for new applications in a variety of areas ranging from biomedical devices to forensic applications.

New theoretical insights into factors which influence electron transfer are also investigated. This fundamental work can impact directly on our understanding of a wide variety of fields and influence future sensor development.

Personal Statement

My current research focuses on understanding and examining the electrochemical and photophysical interactions between transition metal centres and polymer backbone or nano-structured platforms as well as monitoring induced doping changes within the polymer for biomedical applications. Understanding the underpinning electrochemistry is an essential part of any application development. Utilising this knowledge to develop and enhance the applications of these novel materials in sensors to detect disease and/or specific biomarkers and subsequent treatment through innovative drug delivery strategies. The subsequent development of analytical strategies to collect the required information for their incorporation into chemical sensors and biosensors and/or treatment protocols is a key aspect of my research.
