Research Interests

Development of microfluidic technologies and bioanalysis methods that advance genome sequencing, polymorphism characterization, pathogen detection, forensics and health care diagnostics.   Our approach is to exploit miniaturization of chemical and bioanalysis along with high-sensitivity fluorescence detection to produce integrated microfabricated lab-on-a-chip microanalysis systems.  We are now going beyond the traditional lab-on-a-chip concept to the development of chemical and biochemical microprocessors that integrate all aspects of sample processing and analysis.
