De la Garza






    To the webpage of assistant professor Linda de la Garza of the Department of Chemistry at Valdosta State University. Our research group is interested in chemistry at the interfaces. We assemble organic-inorganic and biological- inorganic materials and use spectroscopical, electrochemical, and photoelectrochemical techniques to characterize the active interactions between them. We are focused on developing nanomaterials for energy conversion and sensors.

    Our laboratory is located in the third floor of the Bailey Science Building in Room 3032.

    Prof. Linda de la Garza has research experience on nanostructured semiconductor electrodes, biological fuel cells, and DNA hybridization sensors.
