Besides research, I am excited to interact with students, and would love to teach and mentor students in variable background across multiple levels (e.g., postdoc, graduate, undergraduate, and K-12). I have advised more than dozens of graduate and undergraduate students on their research projects in the field of Bioengineering, Chemical engineering, and Chemistry. I am strongly committed to motivating students to learn the skills of critical thinking and problem solving. I believe in a passionate, responsive and respectful manner to the unique atmosphere of a class can improve students' learning.

Our research group seeks obtaining precise definition and control of immunity at the molecular level to tissue level, via extracellular vesicles and exosomes -mediated delivery and biological programming strategies, which can be employed in advancing cancer immunotherapy, regenerative medicine, and precision therapeutics. The long-standing interest is to understand immunity communication and delivery for translating into novel therapeutics and treatments against cancers, autoimmune diseases, and infectious diseases which immune responses are the central player.
