Research Profile: 

I am an ICTAS Doctoral Scholar and Ph.D. student in the Biological Systems Engineering program. I am currently researching on the design, micro/nanofabrication, and testing of state-of-the art biosensors for precision livestock farming. My research proposes novel biosensor technologies for the diagnosis and prevention of diseases (such as viruses, fungi, bacteria, lameness, etc.) in farm animals, as well as biosensors used in detecting harmful substances in the soil and water.
