Research Interests

Research interest is focused on computational methods development in metabolomics and their applications in drug effect of food compounds discovery, environmental science, and cancer mechanism studies. Research projects including instrumentation analysis using NMR and HPLC/MS on natural compounds extractions and the metabolomic profiling study in a combination of various environmental exposures. Another research goal is to find the link between cancer metabolomic profiling and plant extract compounds profilings which will provide directions to narrow down the most synergetic combinations in plant extract. Moreover, metabolomics studies on photodynamic therapy (PDT) area using nano-size TiO2 for cancer studies is also one of my important research interests.
