Research Interests

Microfluidics, DNA sequencing, lab automation, point-of-care.

Since the inception of microfluidic technology in the 1990s, various miniaturized and integrated microsystems have been developed and are poised to advance analytical tools in scientific study, and will even change our daily lives. Aiming to bring the microfluidics from laboratories to practical applications, the research in my lab is focused on the development of integrated and miniaturized microfluidic systems for high-performance genetic analysis, cell analysis and laboratory automation. Currently, we have the following projects under development:

  • Fully integrated microsystems for targeted DNA sequencing for clinical diagnosis
  • Automated and portable microsystems for on-site forensic short tandem repeat analysis
  • Microfluidic tools for separation and analysis of specific cells, such as circulating tumor cells
  • Miniaturized and integrated cell screening platforms for targeted gene editing
