Professor of Chemistry
My research focuses on using nanotechnology to investigate and control cell singling process such as activation, growth, spreading etc. Scanning probe microscopy based high resolution imaging and nanolithography are developed and utilized for production and characterization of the nanostructures, as well as cell-nanostructure interactions. The relevance to AQRC is the investigation of nanoparticles or pollution mimetics and their interactions to cells.
I teach nanotechnology and high resolution imaging (CHM 241E) at graduate level. At undergraduate level, I teach analytical chemistry (CHM 115), physical chemistry (110C), and general chemistry (CHM 2C).
