  • Research Fields

    Our research focus on developing a series of technology platforms which can be used to synthesize hierarchically structured porous materials, including membranes, microspheres, and responsive sensors in a finely controlled manner. The development of these enabling technology platforms will not only advance some basic science but also address the problems and challenges currently faced by many modern industries. The research program in our group includes the following areas: membrane separation, mesostructured zeolitic materials, heterogeneous catalysis and solid catalysts, biomolecules separation, and sensors for breath testing etc.
