Dr. Gomez's research interests focus on the development of biological applications of microfluidics ("lab-on-a-chip" device development) and capillary electrophoresis (CE) with a particular interest in molecular recognition, enzyme-mediated transformations, high-throughput derivatization and analysis, magnetic valve actuation development, fiber optics detection integration and applications, chemometrics, flow-injection analysis (FIA) and surface plasmon resonance. Since his initial faculty appointment in 1994 he has received over $7 million dollars in research funding from the NSF, NIH, DoD, Research Corporation and industry. In 1997 he was awarded a NSF CAREER Award. Dr. Gomez has published over 73 technical articles, one book and six book chapters on his research. Since 1994, he and his students have presented over 160 scientific research papers at professional meetings and conferences. He actively teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses including general chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and lectures in bioinorganic chemistry, biochemistry, and bioanalytical chemistry.
