    Research Interest:
    Our research group is interested in the interface among microfluidics, nanotechnologies, cellular biology, and drug delivery. Specifically, we focus on the competitive kinetics of self-assembling processes to synthesize nano- and micro-particles with designed structures and functionalities in a scalable manner. Both numerical and experimental endeavor are implemented to elucidate the fundamental mechanisms and to provide heuristic parameters for these physical and chemical processes.
