Followed by postdoctoral appointments at University of California at Berkeley, she went back to Taiwan as an Associate Professor (1996–2001) and Professor (2001–2006) in the Department of Chemistry, Tamkang University. She moved to the Department of Chemistry, National Sun Yat-Sen University in 2006 as a Professor, and since 2006 her research work has focused on nanobiomedicine using nanobased mass spectrometric techniques. Basically, an analytical chemist, she has diversified her research interests to the application of nanobased biological mass spectrometry in bacteriology, mycology, biotechnology, oncology, and molecular biology. Her research diverges into areas such as proteomics, lipidomics, glycomics, and metabolomics. To date, she has more than 100 publications. In National Sun Yat-Sen University, she is also associated with the Doctoral Degree Program in Marine Biotechnology (2009), Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (2008). She also serves as the Editorial Board Member in Journal of Analytical Methods in Chemistry, American Journal of Analytical Chemistry, Journal of Biotechnology and Biomaterials, Journal of Biochips and Tissue Chips and Chemistry (the Chinese Chemical Society, Taipei), Spectroscopy and also as an Associate Editor in Journal of Integrated OMICS. She is currently the Director of Taiwan Society for Mass Spectrometry and delegated as Review Committee Member of the Expensive Instrument Project, National Science Council.
