The Gomez research group is engaged in developing fundamental and applied research in the area of microfluidics. Specifically, we are focused on developing new microfluidic platforms for point-of-care (POC) diagnostic devices, microfluidic fuel cells (MFCs), and chemical and biochemical separations. Current work involves the development of paper microfluidics and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) on microfluidic platforms, enzyme microreactors, surface plasmon resonance (SPR) on chips, novel materials for microfluidics, and chromatography on chips. We also employ response surface methodology (RSM) and artificial neural networks (ANN) to experimentally optimize conditions in microfluidics. The members of the Gomez group include undergraduate and graduate students, high school students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting scientists from the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, mechanical engineering, physics, biology, and mathematics.
