Research Interests

Current Research Interests in 

1. Bionano sensor techniques (fundamentals/applications)

    To develop novel optical/electrochemical sensor technologies for environmental pollutant analysis by combining structural flexibilityof aptamers, for example, with favorable visual/electromagnetic properties of nanomaterials, and thereby improving analytical performances such as ideal high sensitivity and high specificity.

    Main contents: optical/electrochemical sensor techniques (fluorescence, Raman/SERS, electrochemistry); molecular imprinting techniques (molecular recognition, sample pretreatment); platform technologies (micro-/nanofluidic chips, optical fluidic techniques, micromechanical and microchemical engineering technologies).

2. Chromatographic microanalysis techniques (applications)

    To develop new analytical techniques for environmental pollutant analysis (especially trace analysis) based on advantageous characteristics of micro-/nanofluidic capillary/microcolumn chromatographic methods and their coupling techniques, such as low sample and reagent consumption, high sensitivity, high separation efficiency and high capability of structural identification for complicated matrix samples.

    Main contents: capillary electrophoresis/gas chromatography/capillary liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry coupling techniques (CE/GC/CLC-MS); seawater analysis, drug screening and typical pollutant biodegradation investigation. 

3. Opto-electronic monitoring techniques (equipments)

    To research and develop equipments for oceanic water environment monitoring based on advantage characteristics of opto-electronic techniques such as rapidity, non-contact and high sensitivity. The equipments can be conveniently ship/aircraft carried for multi-parameter/component and omnidirectional telemetering /monitoring.

    Main contents: laser induced fluorescence (LIF) technologies/light scattering or absorbing methods for polluted water monitoring; oil pollution, dissolved organic matters (DOM), chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen; turbidity monitoring.
