Research Interests

Our research focuses on nano-metric properties of bio-materials (proteins, bacteria, biofilm, pathogens, materials for bio-applications) that require the application of a whole portfolio of nanoscopic and microscopic. Particularly, we have investigated pathogenic systems with single molecule biophysics methods to establish interdisciplinary medically-oriented research, by incorporating biophysics, physics, microscopy, engineering, and microbiology. Our main interest of research is to understand the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying bacterial interaction and the development of biofilm pathogenicity.

Methods

  • Atomic fore microscopy (AFM) 
  • Single molecule force spectroscopy (SMFS)
  • Surface plasmon resonance (SPR)
