His research interests include the study of chemical and physical properties of advanced materials (carbon-based nanomaterials, piezo materials, thermal expansion materials etc) using nanotechnology, the assembly of different chemical and biological wearable/implantable sensors (DNA, antigen, bacteria, pH, moisture, glucose) as well as an interest in the development of assistive biomedical devices for medical robots.

He is currently an Emerging Leader at the UK Dementia Research Institute. His research focuses on translating his expertise in biosensing technology to develop point-of-care biosensors for the detection of neurodegenerative disease biomarkers.
