Research in our group is highly interdisciplinary, which covers physical and analytical aspects of chemistry, bio-nanotechnology, material sciences, and even more. We are taking advantage of cutting-edge bio-techniques, synthetic chemistry and molecular self-assembly toward building functional nanosystems, which can have appealing optical, electronic, catalytic or electrochemical properties and are now seeing more and more important applications including analytical sensors. We are also interested in using bio-inspired processes and electrochemical approaches to develop new tools for nanotechnological applications. Finally, our research efforts are directed toward probing the basic physics and chemistry of nano-structured interfaces.
