Fields of expertise
We work at the interface between Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Material Sciences, exploring new concepts and mechanisms at the nanoscale. Our current work is focused on tracking fundamental molecular recognition and energy conversion processes in nanostructured materials, across length and timescales and under relevant operando conditions.
Moreover, we use surface science tools to explore the coding of biomimetic structures at the nanoscale. Our goal is to unravel and edit nature’s protocols to design hierarchical materials from molecular building blocks that can self-assemble with predictable shapes and functions: BioNanoarchitectonics.
