Phone: 617-253-5039  


Ph.D., applied physics, Stanford University,1998
B.S., physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, 1994


Research Interests

The Manalis laboratory develops quantitative and real-time techniques for biomolecular detection and single cell analysis. We use conventional silicon processing techniques to fabricate fluidic devices, and exploit the unique physical properties associated with micro- and nanoscale dimensions for developing precision measurement methods.
