About us

Research interests

Our primary research interest is in microfluidics and biosensors for biology and medicine. Novel experimental approaches are employed to study cellular biomechanics and biophysics in many aspects of pathological processes. The results revealed by these studies will be used to seek new treatments for infectious, blood and vascular diseases in human, such as malaria and sickle cell disease.

Research areas

  • Microfluidics and biosensors
  • Cell biomechanics & biophysics
  • In vitro disease models, organ-on-a-chip
  • Composite mechanics and water absorption
