Current Research

My research focuses on the design, analysis and application of functional biointerfaces. The unifying goal of my research activities is to improve the way cells interact with artificial materials to enhance biomaterial and biomedical device performance. By generating interactive interfaces where cells and materials dynamically communicate with each other, I am aiming to explore new approaches for the integration of biomedical devices.

Main topics for current research projects are:

  • Interfacing and guiding neurons with material surfaces
  • Reproducible preparation and quantitative analysis of peptide surfaces
  • How surface properties impact and control self-assembly
  • Responsive peptide surfaces as stem-cell instructive materials
