Bhavya Sharma

I joined the Van Duyne group as a postdoc in April 2011, after receiving my Ph.D. at the University of Pittsburgh in January 2011 under Prof. Sandy Asher. In my Ph.D. research, I used UV resonance Raman spectroscopy and excitation profiles to study electronic transitions in peptides. In the Van Duyne group, I am currently working on developing SERS and SESORS for biological applications, as well as the development of new plasmonic materials. I previously worked on the SERS excitation profiles of nanotags. My hobbies include watching sports, reading, baking, and traveling.
