  • Biography
    My current research as a postdoctoral researcher in the Beckman Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign broadly focused on disease diagnosis using FT-IR spectroscopy and understanding the chemical changes associated with the disease process. Much of my postdoctoral work has focused on the translational development of mid-infrared imaging modalities towards clinical translation. This has involved developing FT-IR imaging and related computational tools towards being a rapid, objective, non-destructive and automated infrared imaging approach for cell type identification and for disease diagnosis/prognosis, with a focus on breast and prostate cancer. I have also worked extensively towards developing the use of high-resolution FT-IR imaging modalities for the identification and chemical characterization of small but clinically important cell types and tissue structures. The implementation of high-resolution imaging will be a critical component of developing FT-IR imaging as a robust and comprehensive diagnostic tool for clinical translation.
