Ho Research Group

Nanomaterials & Nanosystems Innovation

Professor Ghim Wei Ho’s group is focused on the synthesis and nanoengineering of smart and functional nanostructured materials for sustainable applications. Her research group aims to study the next generation nanostructured materials that will impact electronic, healthcare and robotics. Innovative functional devices are fabricated using nanostructured materials ranging from 3D frameworks (MOF, PBA etc.), 2D Crystals (TMD, LDH etc.), 1D (plasmonic wires/tubes) to 0D quantum dots. The group’s approach is multidisciplinary which involves concepts from electrical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science to physics.
