Research Interest

My research background is in the synthesis of inorganic materials, especially nanomaterials, via various techniques. Examples include fabrication of flexible ceramic nanofibers by electrospinning. My work has shifted toward incorporation of nanostructured materials in micro-scaled channel for various applications and the use of microchannel to investigate reaction mechanisms.
