Dr. Kelly L. Nash is an Associate Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her research interest include synthesis and characterization nanomaterials and their application for optical activation of photosensitive polymeric materials; nanophotonics, and examination of nano-bio interfaces for designing single cell and molecular biophysical probes and chemical sensor applications. Experimental techniques include wet chemical synthesis, optical spectroscopy, absorption, flourescence, photoacoustic), and optical microscopy. We are also interested in developing new optical approaches for both imaging from the macro (tissue) to microscale (cells) to molecular level and using nanoparticles to help probe the Biophysics of cells.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.
