I am interested in single-molecule detection and creating Photonic Crystal sensors for research and medical applications. In general, I am driven by projects which combine a fundamental understanding of physics phenomena with a biomolecular system’s relevance and flexibility. Finding new ways to measure and study these systems is what I hope my PhD prepares me for.
