I specialize in the design and synthesis of fluorescent, magnetic, and radioactive imaging probes by solid phase and solution phase techniques. An additional focus is the design of NIR fluorochromes and nucleic acid binding fluorochromes. Radiolabeling and surface modifying of nanoparticles are my recent interests. In many cases, I employ conjugation chemistries for attaching biomolecules to nanoparticles and other solid phases. I am expert in a wide range of characterization techniques including mass spec and NMR.
