Multidisciplinary research forms the 'heart' of my group. We characterise the conformation of biomolecules using acoustic biosensors during biophysical studies; develop molecular diagnostic assays for human viruses, plant-borne pathogens and E-DNA detection; and develop portable platforms for rapid nucleic acid identification outside centralised labs. Several of our concepts have produced innovations in diagnostics, some under validation in South Africa.
