My recent research has focused on the societal implications and role of images in the development of nanotechnology, a complex area of investigation opening a vast new world that exists at one billionth of a meter, a scale fundamental to the building blocks of life, and promises significant effect on our culture. Molecules can be visualized and manipulated atom by atom, images are playing an instrumental role, and these technologies are redefining how we see and what it means to see. My current work is in 3D models for pharmaceutical biotech, working with Synzyme Technologies and nanoBlood LLC on artificial blood for traumatic brain injury, stroke, and CCD.
