Personal profile

Academic Biography

Dr Priyanka Dey has joined as a lecturer in chemistry at Teesside University in Feb 2021. She attained her Ph.D. in chemistry specializing in nanotechnology and optical spectroscopy, from Queensland University of Technology, Australia. Since then, her research has been directed toward designing and developing bio-nanohybrid material-based solutions for real-life problems. This has included work in enhanced Raman scattering (SERS and SESORS) in Australia and UK, nanoplasmonics and photonics in Germany and optical nanobiosensors for clinical and point-of-care devices in Spain. She has years of experience in the ever-growing domain of novel nanoplasmonics using cutting-edge enhanced optical spectroscopic solutions especially, Raman spectrosocpy for clinical diagnostic needs.

 

Summary of Research Interests

Researching ways to uncover the potential of Raman spectroscopy as a clinical cancer diagnosis modality.

This has been attempted by benefitting from various modes of Raman spectroscopy either in label-free form (in vitro, ex vivo) or labelled form by employing designed plasmonic gold nanostructures as Raman barcoded trackers in vivo. Custom-design and dedicated synthesis of structural polymers and hybrid nano-structures are key in achieveing in vivo Raman diagnosis. My other research interests include, plasmon-influenced biomolecular chirality of DNA and water treatment potential of hybrid iron oxide nanostructures.

  • Engineering colloidal plasmonic mainly, gold nano-structures and nano-assemblies. 
  • Investigating nanoplasmonic enhanced optical spectroscopy including Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance LSPR, Raman SERS and Chiral Dichroism CD.
  • Raman disease diagnosis ex vivo and in vivo.
  • Use as optical Point-of-care (POC) detection platforms.
  • Hybrid iron oxide nano-structures for water treatment.
