RESEARCH INTERESTS: Science and technology at the nanoscale

  • Novel nanomaterials with unique structures and characteristics for electronics and biological applications, including rational synthesis and assembly of 0-D and 1-D metal/semiconductor materials into complex and ordered structures through combination of top-down and bottom-up process; studies of the basic chemical and physical properties of such materials/structures with the emphasis on pushing to the limit of ultra-sensitive detection of molecular interactions, especially those involved in biological processes.
  • Interfacing nanoelectronics with complex biological networks for in vitro and in vivo applications, including development of ultrasmall and multiplexed probes as new tools for fundamental research of extra- and intracellular processes as well as functional cell circuitries, creating hybrid structures of nanoscale electronics and living cell networks/tissues for bidirectional communication and biomimetic information processing.
