Summary of Activities/Interests

We explore and apply non-equilibrium electrokinetic, electrochemical and plasmonic phenomena to develop a low-cost and portable biosensing platform for the detection of nucleic acid (DNA/RNA/microRNA) as well as antibody-antigen biomarkers. We design a range of sensing platform by using simple micro-fabrication, surface modification, gold nanoparticle aggregation, ion-selective nanoporous membrane and nanostructure assemblies. We also work on prototyping integrated diagnostic platform.
