Academic interests

  • Self-assembling soft matter and biomaterials based on surfactants, block-copolymers, polyelectrolytes, peptides and peptoides.
  • Structural characterization of micelles/nanoparticles/vesicles/Poly-Ion complexes using Small-angle neutron/X-ray scattering (SANS/SAXS) and theoretical modeling.
  • Kinetic pathways and dynamics in soft matter systems: Formation, unimer exchange and molecular transport.
  • Encapsulation and release in polymer/peptide based nanocarriers.
  • Time-resolved SANS and SAXS/stopped-flow techniques.
  • Dynamic and static Light scattering (DLS/SLS).
