Bio-nano fusion/nanotechnology/
I am interested in the research work based on fusion of different science fields, namely physics, chemistry and biotechnology. I focus on research themes such as
(a) Bio-nano fusion ? nano drug delivery, aptamer (DNA and RNA based) sensors and bio/chemical sensors.
(b) Nanotechnology and materials science ? carbon nanotubes and nano particles, quantum dots for solar cell applications and plasma processing, thin films.
(c) Biotechnology ? bio materials - scaffolds for tissue engineering, surface modification of biomaterials and quantum dots for bio-imaging.

Design and fabrication of nanoscale electron devices
I am currently studying the physics of nanoscale electron devices and am interested in its application to nanoelectronics. I have studied the electrical properties of thin SOI films and the structures of SOI MOSFETs with decanano scale gates. I proposed FI (fully inverted) SOI MOSFETs with ultra-thin SOI films and novel FD (fully depleted) SOI MOSFETs. I have demonstrated the advantages of MOSFETs fabricated on SOQ wafers over MOSFETs fabricated on SOI wafers in nanoscale electron devices.
(a) Clarification of the physics of ultra-thin SOI (silicon-on-insulator) films
(b) Design of novel structures for decanano scale MOSFETs
(c) Development of SOQ (silicon-on-quartz) MOSFETs

Self-organisation/self-assembly in nano/micro systems
I am very much interested in pattern formations, synchronisation and chaos created via self-organisation/self-assembly, which are induced in nano/micro systems. Fluctuations, surface effects and quantum effects, in particular, become significant on nanometre scales, which makes nano systems completely different from our macroscopic world. Some of my recent studies are listed below;
(a) Development of nano-thermo statistical mechanics
(b) Creation of carbon nanostructures utilising critical fluids
(c) Development of nano/micro robots
(d) Development of nano/micro devices for medical and environmental applications

Self-organisation/nonlinear dynamics of nano/micro materials
I am interested in self-organisations, phase transitions, and non-linear dynamics of nano/micro materials disperse systems such as suspensions, in which nano/micro particles, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes or biological cells are dispersed. I am also interested in  bio-nano fusion technologies utilising the above phenomena induced in nano/micro materials disperse systems. Some of my recent studies are listed below;
(a) Creation of nano/micro structures utilising self-organizations of nano/micro materials
(b) Development of nano/micro machines composed of nano/micro materials for biological and medical applications
(c) Interactions between nano/micro materials and biomolecules such as DNA and enzymes

Self-organization of nano/micro particles and its application
I am deeply interested in self-organization, self-assembly and pattern formations of nano/micro particles. Moreover, I'm developing microfluidic systems using nano/micro particles. Some of my current research are as follows;
a) Pattern formed by magnetic nano/micro particles in an external magnetic field.
b) Synthesis of magnetic nano/micro particles.
c) Interactions between bio materials and nano/micro particles.
d) Development of nano/micro fluidic systems for medical diagnostics.

Carbon nano-materials/self-assembly/convective self-assembly
I am very interested in creation of new nano-structures using carbon materials such as fullerene and carbon nanotubes and formation of arbitrary patterns via self-organizing consisting of these carbon nano-materials. Especially, I am focus on pattern formation using deposition (coffee ring phenomenon) due to evaporation process of systems in which particles and molecules are dispersed. Some of my recent studies are listed below;
(a) Creation of new carbon nano-structures via self-assembly using fullerene
(b) Pattern formation of carbon nano-structures due to evaporation process
(c) Preparation of cancer detection chip using carbon nano-structures

Bio-Nano Science (Animal & Plant Systems)/Targeted Nanodrug Delivery/Bio-imaging/Nanovaccines/Lab on Chip

My focus area of research involves synthesis of biocompatible nanomaterials and their applications in animal and plant systems. I am particularly inclined towards hard to treat cancers as brain cancer and pancreatic cancer. Specifically:

(a) Bio-functionalization of nanomaterials for in vitro and in vivo applications (toxicity assessment, biodistribution analysis, deep tissue imaging, therapeutic evaluations etc).
(b) Formulating nanomaterials (metal, lipid, hybrid, magnetic, quantum dots etc.) for imaging (visible, NIR, X-Ray, MRI), targeted drug delivery and allied therapeutic (photothermal therapy, photodynamic therapy, magnetic hyperthermia etc.) applications.
(c) Development of nanovaccines for anti-cancer therapy.
(d) Fabricating microchips for bio-sensing applications.
(e) Studying the effects (beneficial/toxic) of nanomaterials in plant systems.
