What we do:

We work at the intersection of physics, chemistry and engineering to develop the next-generation of novel laser sensors for identifying the chemical makeup of materials in real-time. Applications include energy storage (batteries), energy conversion (solar), biology, environment and nuclear security.

Research Areas

Laser-Material Interactions

Elemental and Isotopic Analysis

Remote Sensing

Multimodal Imaging

New Sampling Approaches


Machine Learning
