Research interests

  • Xunli’s key expertise lies in the area of microfluidics technology from design and fabrication of microfluidic devices, through the development of in-situ monitoring methods for bio/chemical processes, to microfluidic modelling, microsystems integration and automation. The application is largely associated with biomedical challenges like patient specific design of microfluidic devices for cancer treatment, rapid diagnosis, and tackling antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The continuous flow reactors have been used for the synthesis of a range of nanoparticles, both organic and inorganic, for application in drug delivery and energy saving. The technologies developed in his research have also found great potential for industrial applications through a variety of industrial collaborations.
