KEN RESEARCH GROUP
synthesis | sensing | sustainability
Welcome to Ken Research Group!
Our research focuses on Chemical Technologies to translate academic discoveries into practical solutions in Synthesis, Sensing and Sustainability.
In Synthesis, we are interested in high-throughput experimentation, automated synthesis using robots, flow chemistry and beads technology.
In Sensing, we are interested to develop functional nanoplatforms for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
In Sustainability, we are interested to develop viable solutions in heterogeneous food waste recycling and biovalorisation of homogeneous food processing by-products, towards Green, Health and Nutrition outcomes.
