Personal profile

Research interests

Our current research focuses on design and construction of artificial chemical cells and protocell models based on spontaneous processes of inorganic self-organization, construction of functional membrane of inorganic protocells and self-reproduction of inorganic protocells.

Research interests also focuse on the areas of synthesis, surface modification, self-assembly and applications of functional hybrid nanomaterials, mesoporous materials, bionanotechnology and biomineralization. These activities involve a wide range of interdisciplinary fields across nanotechnology, materials chemistry, biology and physics.
