Electrochemistry for Sensors and Energy

A Live Talk Electrochemistry for Sensors and Energy presented on December 2nd, 2020 hosted by Gamry Instruments and presented by Ariel L. Furst, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT.   

Gamry is pleased to have Ariel L. Furst, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT, presenting this talk.

Electrochemistry is an exceptionally powerful tool to form chemical bonds and monitor chemical and biological interactions. By improving the chemistry used to assemble biomolecules on electrode surfaces, the selectivity and sensitivity of these devices has been significantly improved. 

Ariel L. Furst, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT

 Ariel received a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Chicago working with Prof. Stephen B. H. Kent on the chemical synthesis of proteins. She then completed her Ph.D. in the lab of Prof. Jacqueline K. Barton at the California Institute of Technology developing new cancer diagnostic strategies based on DNA charge transport. She was then an A. O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Prof. Matthew Francis at the University of California, Berkeley. She is now an assistant professor in the Chemical Engineering Department at MIT. She is passionate about STEM outreach and increasing participation of underrepresented groups in engineering.
