Our group does research in a variety of fields ranging from catalysis to biomedicine. We specialize in the development of measurement techniques and methodologies applied to chemical systems and condensed matter systems. For example, methodologies have included the development of magnetic resonance technology. The measurement techniques, schemes and methodologies we develop focus on probing the properties of matter, their various phases and transformations. We are generally interested in chemical structure, biological, static and nonequilibrium (e.g. transport) electronic and magnetic properties. We are also interested in the development of novel computational techniques and algorithms applied to our projects.
At present, our research themes cover heterogeneous catalysis, molecular imaging, drug delivery, bioreactors, condensed matter studies of topological materials. In heterogeneous catalysis we develop and study reaction mechanisms involving new catalysts from fundamental science to reaction engineering, with an emphasis on the development of operando techniques. We also work in condensed matter physics to study materials possessing exotic band structures, develop probes for molecular imaging, drug delivery systems for multi-modality imaging and theranostics, solid-state nanoscale magnetometry, bioengineering technique development for regenerative medicine. We have also been developing methodology for correlated optical and electron microscopy in live cells. We also work on the development of new algorithms for image reconstruction, signal and image denoising, distortion removal, and inverse-problem solutions applied to reactor design and control.
