Surface/Interfacial Science and Micro-/Nanosystems Technology
Our research program centers around physical and chemical issues related to the development of new applications of micro- and nanotechnology. Leveraging our interest and expertise in materials, interfacial phenomena, electrochemistry, and nanostructures & self-assembly, we aim for fundamental and practical advances in a variety of applications, including micro/nanosystems technology, sensing, energy and biomimetics.
