I am the inventor of two novel analytical technologies for characterising biopharmaceutical products: virus lasers are an exciting new class of ligand-binding assay in which the biorecognition probes generate a laser signal, and decay-associated chromatography is a label-free spectroscopic technique for quantifying proteins directly in mixtures. As a RSE Enterprise fellow hosted at the UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering I am working towards the translation of these technologies into commercial products.

Research Summary

My long-term vision is to establish virus laser technology as a once-in-a-generation analytical technology that will have a transformative impact in biological manufacturing, clinical diagnostics and environmental sensing. I am leading a research and innovation programme into virus lasers, including exploring the synthetic biology and laser physics aspects of virus lasers, and developing commercial-grade instruments and biorecognition probes.
