Yanxian currently focuses on the complex coacervation of intrinsically disordered protein (IDP) and RNA. He applies three different methods to his research including magnetic resonance-based techniques to probe conformation and dynamics of IDP and RNA, polymer and colloid characterization approaches on the properties of complex coacervate, and bioinformatic approaches on predicting complex coacervation.
