Research Interest

The goal of my research is to fabricate functional structures with properties designed for advanced applications. My research includes the fabrication of layer-by-layer (LbL) assembled films with polymer and inorganic nanostructures, synthesis inorganic hollow structure, self-assembly of nanoparticles by ligand replacing and exploring the films or hollow structures for the applications as sensors, catalysts, drug carriers and biological support materials.
