Research Interests

My current research is focused on developing advanced functional stimuli-responsive surfaces possessing tunable wettability utilizing various fabrication methodologies including dip-coating, layer-by-layer deposition and spray-coating. These surfaces are of great interest due to their unique responsive wettability change upon external stimuli such including light, electric field, liquid and humidity.Among various practical applications, I am currently interested in the areas of liquids separation, desalination, self-healable coating and robust photocatalytic membranes.
