Academic  expertise and research direction

With  the objective of solving biomedical problems at molecular, cellular and tissue  level by the cutting edge nanotechnology and photonics, my research is highly  cross-disciplinary, including nanomaterials, bio and nanophotonics,  microfluidic chips, imaging technology and instruments and so on.

Current  research and other projects

1.  Multiplex bioassays based on photonic crystals and microfluidic chips

2.  High resolution molecular imaging of cell/tissue by complex modes of optical  and mass spectrum

3.  Point Of Care Test (POCT) devices based on plasmonic structures
