It is all for our food and agricultural systems

    Current food production is facing a tremendous challenge as the world’s population is expected to increase by 2 billion in the next 30 years (from 7.7 billion currently to 9.7 billion in 2050). As a researcher specializing in biotechnical engineering, my academic footprint is firmly rooted in the Food-Energy-Water nexus. With a focus on improving the safety of food and agricultural systems, my research program will develop and apply advanced and innovative Bioengineering and Biosensing (BEBS) approaches in solving the critical and emerging issues in food and agricultural systems. Our research interests span from molecular-level microorganism editing to engineering-level process design and optimization. The innovative technologies will include CRISPR, engineered phages, engineered yeasts, nanomaterials, microfluidic devices, and artificial intelligence (AI). In addition, I am employing these innovative technologies in the field of biomedical engineering and environmental engineering.
