About me

I am a scientific researcher with background in Nanotechnology, Nano-sensor technology, Materials Science, Surface enhanced Raman scattering, Laser and Optical diagnostics. I am the author of 16 international peer-reviewed publications. I have participated in 3 funding applications and has reviewed 22 manuscripts for international peer-reviewed journals.

My current research interest is to fabricate surface enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrates for the applications of food safety diagnostics and biosensing.

Now I have a few topics on SERS sensors for bachelor and master students. You are welcome to contact me if you have interest.

Research description

During my PhD study, I have worked on functional nanoparticle synthesis via single and double flame spray pyrolysis (FSP), as well as studying droplet combustion and explosion using optical diagnostic techniques, including shadowgraphy (high-speed camera recording and backlight), rainbow refractometry, interferometric particle imaging, and digital in-line holography. I joined the group of Prof. Georgios Sotiriou in 2020 and my current research interest is to fabricate plasmonic nanostructured substrates for chemical and biological sensing applications. I have published 9 first-author papers and 7 co-author papers in the international journals including Advanced Science, Combustion and Flame, Proceedings of the Combustion Institute, Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, ACS Applied Nano Materials, ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, as well as Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science.
