The Levine research group focuses on the development of chemical sensors, using supramolecular complexation of the target analyte, a transducer (either color-changing or fluorescence-changing), and a supramolecular host (usually cyclodextrin-based). These systems are designed to address the unmet need for chemical sensors that can be used by the general population. Our research is highly interdisciplinary, starting from the fundamental science and building up to the successful development of practical sensors. Female and other gender minority applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
