Research Interests
Development of advanced instrumentation and methodologies for biochemical analysis and biosensing. 
The main research focuses include :
1) Development of high sensitivity flow cytometry (HSFCM) to address the challenge of quantitative physical and      biochemical characterization of single nanoparticles in nanotechnology, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine,  biopharmaceuticals, and basic science.
2) High-throughput, high-resolution, and multiparameter characterization of single natural and synthetic nanoparticles such as gold, silver, silica, polymeric, and iron oxide nanoparticles, lipid-based nanomedicines, quantum dots, and viruses.
3) Specific analysis of individual bacteria for pathogen identification, antibiotic resistance detection, and biological function studies.
4) Development of advanced methodologies for the individual analysis of subcellular organelles such as mitochondria, extracellular vesicles (microvesicles and exosomes), and chromosomes.

5) Development of microsphere-based suspension array technology for biomedical and biochemical applications.
