Dr Kee’s research interests are focused on biophysical chemistry and materials chemistry.┬áHis research is directed towards using time-resolved spectroscopy and nonlinear optical microscopy to investigate important molecular processes in the following systems.
– Elucidating the roles of excited state intramolecular hydrogen atom transfer and hydrogen bonding in the anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects of the medicinal pigment curcumin.
– Investigating the physical and chemical developments in the differentiation of cardiomyocytes from adult stem cells non-invasively and continuously using coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) and second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy.
– Providing chemical and physical insights into the formation of the highly luminescent conjugated polymer nanoparticles, improving the biocompatibility by biopolymer grafting and surface patterning for bio-imaging applications.
