 Research Fields

Membrane Separation:

The major research fundamentals focus on the control of protein adsorption behavior from the chemical properties and physical structures of membrane surface. We currently concentrate on the development of low-fouling membranes for protein separation and water treatment.


Biomaterials and Biomolecular Engineering:

Our present interest lies on studying the non-fouling mechanism of biomaterials to biomolecules (protein, cell and tissues). The next step is to design and prepare polymeric materials with anti-fouling functionality and nano-carriers with specific recognition property.


Molecular Simulation:

The present research concentrates on two major efforts: (1) For biomolecular systems, we examine the mechanism of interracial molecular interactions (specific binding and nonspecific adsorption) between biomolecules and a material surface. (2) For polymeric systems, we study the fundamentals of polymer phase behaviors and build the control mechanism of morphology transformations.

Potential Applications of Research
