My research is covering a number of themes:

1) Functionality, dispersibility and toxicities of antimicrobial nanoparticles (AMNP) for biomedical and healthcare applications: The study also includes conjugates of nanoparticles, antibiotics, and drug-related chemicals (i.e. nanoparticles conjugated amino-glycosides or bis-tris-phosphonates) for biomedical applications.

2) Characterisation of antiviral & antimicrobial bulk metals (e.g. stainless steels, Ti/Mg alloys): The project is a continuation of the antiviral nanoparticles (AVNP) consortium project (DTI (£3.2M 2006-10). The research was aimed at the creation of the AVNPs with a controlled nanotoxicity.

3) My other research field also included a lightweight fibre-reinforced polymer and ceramic composites, natural fibre and fabrics, and their sustainable. The project covered with fibre surface treatment, as well as functional nanomaterials for composite applications in Radar Cross-section (RCS) reduction used in wind turbine rotor blades. I was also involved in a collaborative scheme for fission energy jointly working with ICL, Oxford, and NDA. The initial project was for developing UK-China research collaborations in nuclear waste management, including the involvement in clay minerals and stainless steels for nuclear-engineered barrier system EBS in the possible geological repository.
