Current Research

My research is focused on the synthesis and applications of mesoporous thin-film materials by the combination of lithographical technology and inorganic/organic cooperative assembly. This mixed top-down/bottom-up approach will be able to design and fabricate new mesoporous materials for many applications in optics, catalysis, and chemical sensors.
