Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the University of Strathclyde as a Chancellor’s Fellow in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry in 2021. Prior to joining strathclyde, I was a Senior Researcher in the BioElectronic Systems and Technologies group in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. Before that, I was a Postdoc in the  Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford and the Department of Applied Physics at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

I hold a Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry, and my research interests include novel biosensor development and application. I am currently working on highly sensitive organic bioelectronics integrated with microfluidics for real time and label free monitoring of various biomarkers, aimed at early diagnosis and effective therapy for diseases.

Expertise & Capabilities

I have been working in the multidisciplinary field of biosensing. I design chemical interfaces for biosensors to enable selective and sensitive detection of various biomarkers, and thus can be used in clinical and medical applications. I also have expertise in Field Effect Transistors, especially Organic Electrochemical Transistors. I have used transistors to detect protein, glycan and microRNA biomarkers in cancer cells, and successfully  differentiate their expression levels with normal cells. In addition to extensive experience in Electrochemical methods, I also fabricated flexible bioelectronics and all the measurements can be done using a mobile phone.

I am always interested in establishing new collaborations with academics or industry.

Industrial Relevance

I am always interested to hear from potential industry partners. If you have a project in mind that includes the development, characterization or application of biosensors or bioelectronics, please contact me by email to discuss how our research may help you.
