Research Interests:

  • Synthesis, characterization and assembly of nanocrystals with controllable morphology, composition, dimensionality, microstructure and novel properties.
  • Fabrication of nanocatalysts and inorganic/organic hybrid nanostructures for applications in solar energy conversion, bio-energy conversion, and environmental cleanup.
  • Probe of interfacial processes at nanoscales in complex environmental systems with advanced neutron and spectroscopic scattering techniques (SANS, SAXS, SERS, DLS).
  • Design and development of miniaturized sensing devices and intelligent sensors with advanced nanomaterials for nonlinear optics, biological species identification, trace chemical detection, and environmental contaminant monitoring.
  • Formation, transfer and transformation of nanomaterials in subsurface systems and evaluation of toxicity of nanomaterials to natural environment and human health.
