  • Research Topic

DNA Gene Mapping and Separation Techniques
Develop novel micro/nanofluidic devices in conjunction with biochemical analysis and fluorescence microscopy to improve the current technologies for DNA gene analysis and genomic DNA separation.

Mesoscale Simulations for Biomolecules
Using mesoscale molecular simulations to understand and predict the behavior of biomolecules (DNA, proteins and lipids) at mesoscale level. The simulations are also used to help design new devices for manipulating biomolecules.

Novel Microparticle Synthesis
Combining the flow-lithography and novel materials to manufacture various functional microparticles. We have created bihydrogel pH and temperature microsensors and the methods of mass production of micro ceramic mechanical components.
