Assistant Professor of Chemistry; Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; Paul Berg Early Career Professorship in the Eberly College of Science
Developing chemical tools to monitor cellular stresses that influence protein folding in real time. Deciphering how the energy landscapes associated with proper protein folding and function are regulated by the cellular folding environment. Examining how this regulation leads to significant biological consequences.
Associate Professor of Bioengineering
My laboratory aims at developing and applying micro/nano technologies for biological and medical applications. On one hand, I am interested in studying miniaturized devices and systems that can be integrated with biological system in vitro and in vivo. On the other hand, I am eager to apply these technologies for fundamental biological research, clinic diagnosis and treatment. The research is highly multidisciplinary, interfacing at engineering, biological sciences, physical sciences, and medicine.
