Our group’s research interests are primarily focused on the development and validation of biochemical sensors and biophotonic devices for application in clinical or point-of-care diagnostics. We conduct research to create novel biosensors devices that can reversibly measure a wide range of biomarkers in biological samples at nano/micromolar sensitivity. The applications of these biochemical sensors are in wearable devices, minimally-invasive sensors with subcutaneous probes, and implantable chips for prolonged biomarker monitoring.
PhD Studentships: Our group is seeking to recruit a PhD student to carry out research in the area of artificial intelligence and biochemical sensors. Find out more
Postdoctoral Research Associates: Our group is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral research associate to carry out research in biochemical sensors.
