    Personal Statement

    The research projects in this group fall within the areas of Materials Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Nanomedicine, and Separation Science. Currently, we are particularly active in the research areas of porous materials by emulsion-templating and ice-templating, carbon materials, water treatment, novel stationary phase for HPLC, electrode materials, drug nanoparticles, and non-invasive bioimaging. We don't have any funded positions available now. But we are happy to accept self-funded postgraduate students and researchers in the group in all these research areas, particularly (1) Fluorescent and NIR active nanomaterials for detection and bioimaging; (2) Nanofibrous membranes and monoliths for separation and environment remediation; (3) Phosphazene-based materials as advanced adsorbents and heterogeneous catalysts.

    If you are interested in postgraduate study/research in the group, please feel free to contact me directly.
