Ioana E. Pavel Sizemore, Ph.D.
Physical Chemistry (with a special emphasis on Raman and Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy)
Goals of Current Projects:
To develop novel research-oriented laboratories for instrumental analysis, physical chemistry and nanotechnology courses.
To fabricate, characterize, and manipulate colloidal silver nanomaterials for various applications
To engineer, SERS-based nanosensors for the real-time detection of biological and chemical warfare agents down to the single molecule
To engineer benign SERS-based nanosensors for imaging specific cellular processes.
To determine the toxicological effects of platinum group metals (PGMs) on the bone tissue of developing chick embryos.
To investigate the environmental fate and transport of colloidal silver nanomaterials in a groundwater aquifer.
