The main areas of interest are separation science including capillary electrophoresis, electrochromatography, liquid chromatography and related methods, microfluidic chip-based separations, as well as in areas of molecular spectrophotometry and instrumental design. Research interests are both fundamental and applied in their nature in the general fields of chemical and biochemical analysis, physical chemistry and engineering, with emphasis on: • Separation methods, including electro-driven separations and specifically capillary electrophoresis (CE), electrochromatography (CEC), and CE-on-a-chip devices; • Instrumentation aspects, including miniaturised, portable/point-of-care and remote analytical systems, and detection with optical and electrochemical methods; • Solid state light sources, namely light-emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes (LDs) and super-luminescent LEDS (SLEDs), and their utilisation in detection, sensors, photochemistry, heaters, actuators and lab-on-a-chip devices; • Numerical simulations in fluidic systems. The research philosophy is in crossing boundaries between disciplines and between areas of fundamental or applied research, and in utilising at a maximum modern high-tech-low-$ ‘smart gadgets’.
