目前及未來所要發展的研究方向

My current research focuses on the study of the fate and transport of chemicals of emerging concern, specifically pharmaceuticals, in the agroecosystem. Our research group will be working on (1) developing analytical methods for pharmaceutical residues in environmental samples, (2) understanding the mechanism of plant uptake of pharmaceuticals, (3) establishing identification methods of pharmaceutical metabolites in plants using liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS), and (4) understanding the transformation pathways of pharmaceuticals during plant uptake. The overarching goal of the lab’s research is to provide the needed knowledge to better assess the potential risks to food safety and human health.
