portrait of Houston Miller

Houston Miller, a Leverhulme visiting professor from George Washington University, has arrived to stay for 4 months in Chemical Engineering to develop a novel SERS (surface enhanced raman spectroscopy) confocal microscope with the Laser Analytics group. The aim is to use nanoparticles injected into living cells as signal reporters for a range of molecular species. Professor Miller will also give a series of lectures, the so called Leverhulme lectures, as part of his stay in Cambridge. He has expertise in a variety of laser diagnostic measurement techniques and some of the instrumentation he has developed has been used on space shuttle missions.
