Research:

In brief, I do not have a research program at CSUS; however, I am trying to find time to work at UC Davis on my previous project regarding the study of the adsorption of proteins on deposit tin film gold. Recently, I finished a bio structure model based on the computer OpenGL coding program. I also work with Semiconductor Analytical Service (SAS) as a senior scientific consultant from time to time.
