Research Topic

We are exploring the electrochemical wonderland of various interfaces such as nano scale electrode surfaces and biological cell membranes. Nano-interface electrochemistry offers valuable intuition in new energy sources, biosensors and information processes in living organisms. Besides the fundamental approach to what happens at the interfaces, our research is centered on neuro-computer interface bridging between electronics and neuronal network through bilateral bioelectronic junctions and high throughput miniaturized bioanalytical chip system by employing innovative micro-nano machined fluidic technology(lab-on-a-chip) and spectroelectrochemical imaging tools.
