Welcome to the Lew Lab

Our lab explores the intersection of nanotechnology, plant biology, chemistry, and engineering to revolutionize smart agriculture. We develop nano-enabled toolsets to communicate with living plants, to engineer smarter crops, and to advance the understanding of plant physiology.

We are a multi-disciplinary research team in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at National University of Singapore (NUS), with affiliations in the NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI) and Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) program.
