Research Focus

1.     Revealing the formation mechanism of chemical hazards (e.g., acrylamide, heterocyclic amine, etc.) during thermal and non-thermol food processing.

2.     Studying the major factors influencing the specific recognition of antibody and successful design of the optimal hapten structure by spatial overlap and advanced multivariate statistical analyses.

3.     Developing various immunoassays (e.g., enzyme-linked immunoassay, colloidal gold-labeled immunoassay, quantum dot-labeled and upconversion fluorescence-labeled immunoassay, immunoaffinity column, and bionic antibody-based enzyme-linked immunoassay).

4.     Developing accurate detection techniques based upon the combination of enrichment and separation materials (e.g., multi-wall carbon nanotube, molecular imprinted polymers, metal-frame materials, etc.) with various detection methods, such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, (surface enhanced) Raman spectroscopy, and graphene-based electrochemical and optical sensors.
