In my current position of directing the Centre for Material Imaging and Analysis, I am focused on integrating analytical techniques in interdisciplinary studies; collaborative programmes have included: (i). Electrochemical characterisation of microdroplets in microchannels, (ii). AC voltammetric techniques in microfluidic environments, (iii). Study of stem cell screening using microfluidic platforms, (iv). Applications of algae and cyanobacteria in solar cells, (v). Harnessing solar energy using biophotovoltaic devices, (vi). Electrochemical and optical charactertisation of fuel cells using microfluidic systems.

In addition, core to my present research activities, I am interested in developing a range of nanoscaled analytical devices using facilities at the IRC Nanoscience Laboratory at the University of Cambridge.  The motivation is to develop nanoelectrochemical sensors and their application in novel high precision sensors.  The ultimate aim being the realisation of intricate technology platforms for studying electron transfer in biological systems.
