I am a PDRA at UCL in the McKendry group, working on the development of low-cost, rapid, sensitive diagnostic platforms using paper microfluidics and nanomaterials. Paper microfluidics is a robust, low-cost technology which allows multi-step biochemical reactions with no user input. I focus on improving the sensitivity of paper microfluidic tests by using novel nanomaterials and readout strategies working towards low-cost, paper-based single-molecule detection of protein and molecular biomarkers.
I completed by PhD in biomedical nanotechnology at UCL in 2019. My undergraduate and masters background is electrical and electronic engineering, with my masters project in electrode design for impedance-based sensing serving as my introduction to biosensing, under the supervision of Professor Arokia Nathan.
