Research Interests

Our research interests are primarily in bioanalytical chemistry using microfluidics. Currently our research focuses on: (1) structural and functional analysis of biological molecules; (2) preparation and kinetic studies of soft materials, such as polymers, gels and biomacromolecules. We are developing new techniques utilizing microreactors and microchannels to achieve our goals.
