Research Interest

  • We focus on preparation of nanomaterials through green approaches and their applications in sensing, cell imaging, nanodrugs, and new energy sources. Specific topics of interests include:

  1. Development of gold, silver, copper, and carbon based optical probes. 

  2. Nanomaterials for fuel cells, supercapacitors, and reduction of carbon dioxide.

  3. Preparation of nanodrugs for antibacterial, anticoagulation, and anticancer.

  4. Fabrication and applications of microstructures of nanomaterials.
