My research focuses on nano-metric properties of bio-materials (proteins, bacteria, biofilm, oxide materials for bio-applications) that require the application of a whole portfolio of nanoscopic and microscopic techniques (atomic force microscopy, electrostatic force microscopy, near-field scanning optical microscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and electron microscopy). I have also studied microbial systems using single molecule methods to establish interdisciplinary medically-oriented research, by incorporating engineering, condensed matter and biophysics, microscopy, soft lithography, and microbiology.
