Primary Focus: I am interested in characterizing the molecular components of tissue fluorescence in the lung. Traditional fluorescence microscopy techniques have sought to reduce autofluorescence and maximize fluorescence from exogenous fluorophores. However, autofluorescence has recently been utilized as a marker of cancer progression, and may be a marker of other pathologies. My interests involve designing biomedical imaging systems to detect changes in lung autofluorescence.
