Gavin’s research interests lay at the intersection of condensed matter physics, molecular biology, and nanotechnology. During his graduate research, he developed some of the first nanopore sequencing devices as well as ice lithography, a novel nanofabrication method. He carried out postdoctoral research at JILA/National Institute of Standards and Technology where he spearheaded a project to develop high precision atomic force microscopy apparatus. His laboratory at MU focuses on central problems in membrane biophysics, developing and applying state-of-the-art single molecule biophysics technology.
