Dutta Group

Our research involves designing miniaturized devices for energy and analytical chemistry applications using advances in micro- and nanofabrication technology. We are also interested in understanding the transport of chemical and biological molecules as they travel through micro- and sub-micrometer scale channels. Both theoretical and experimental tools are being used in our laboratory to accomplish these research objectives. Specific projects that are currently being pursued involve (1) development of highly sensitive microfluidic immunoassay platforms (2) development of novel micro-/nanofluidic separation methods that rely on the combined use of electrokinetic and pressure-driven flows (3) development of novel electrokinetic batteries and (4) development of a mathematical framework for estimating stream broadening in free-flow electrophoretic assays.
