Nanotechnology Research Programs/Activities:

My current research interests focus on developing scalable chemical processes to synthesize carbon nanomaterials with well-defined nanoscale structures, assembling nanoscale carbon nanomaterials into functional macroscale structures, and utilizing these novel materials for sustainable energy and environmental applications.

The followings are several our on-going projects:
(n,m) controlled synthesis of single walled carbon nanotubes
Space-confined assembly of carbon architectures
Carbon fiber based energy storage devices
Nanocarbon for enviormental applications: membrane and antibacterial materials
Nanocarbon based electrocatalysts
