Details

Dr. Marshall Porterfield is a Professor of Agricultural and Biological Engineering, a Professor of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, a Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and Co-Director of the Physiological Sensing Facility (PSF) at Purdue University. He received a B.S. from the University of South Alabama in biology with a focus on cell biology and a Ph.D. at Louisiana State University. The PSF is an interdisciplinary resource that engages Purdue scientists and engineers in the development and application of advanced biosensing technologies as new tools for discovery. Dr. Porterfield's research focus includes advanced physiological sensing technologies for research applications in biology, agriculture, and medicine. Specific projects include scanning probe sensor technology, biosensors, bioMEMS, bionanotechnology, and lab-on-a-chip systems. He also works with plant systems in bioregenerative life support systems for spaceflight. Specific projects include cell signaling, biophysical limitations in microgravity, nutrient delivery technology, and biomimetic sensors.
