Dr. Rachel Norman

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Rachel is interested in the manufacturing of nanostructures in combination with vibrational spectroscopy for use in biosensing applications. Rachel achieved her Ph.D. research on the simultaneous detection of multiple explosives using surface enhanced Raman scattering with Prof. Karen Faulds at the University of Strathclyde, UK in 2016.

The focus of Rachel’s postdoctoral research is to develop a novel microfluidic device for on demand manufacturing of nanostructured imaging probes, such as quantum dots and nanorods, for biological applications.
