Nanoscience Faculty Research

Dr. Tetyana Ignatova, Assistant Professor

Dr. Tetyana Ignatova

Assistant Professor

Dr. Ignatova’s research interests and professional training are highly crossed-disciplinary, enabling a broad perspective on nanoscience. Her group works on experimental nanoscience of low dimensional materials, focusing on the physics of biosensing, spectroscopic intra-cellular imaging and nanofabrication for energy storage.

Dr. Sherine obare

dean & Professor

Dr. Obare’s research focuses on developing novel materials for the detection and remediation of environmental contaminants. She develops materials that are applied to catalysis for biomass conversion and alternative energy.  Another area of research deals with chemical sensors and biosensors, and understanding the fate, transport, and toxicity of anthropogenic nanomaterials.
