Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Materials Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsJohn's Ph.D. research concentrated on elucidating spin-dependent electron transport through chiral molecular assemblies, measuring room-temperature electron spin filtering in DNA-mediated charge transfer, and spin-dependent energy barriers to photoelectron transmission through helical oligopeptides. John's current postdoctoral research focuses on theoretical design and experimental implementation of nanophotonic platforms to amplify chiral light–matter interactions for advanced spectroscopies.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe underlying theme of the Appel Lab at Stanford University integrates concepts and approaches from supramolecular chemistry, natural/synthetic materials, and biology. We aim to develop supramolecular biomaterials that exploit a diverse design toolbox and take advantage of the beautiful synergism between physical properties, aesthetics, and low energy consumption typical of natural systems. Our vision is to use these materials to solve fundamental biological questions and to engineer advanced healthcare solutions.
