My research is focused on using nanophysical phenomena for the development of biophysical tools. In particular, I explore the optical properties of metal nanostructures, so-called nanoplasmonic systems, and their use in biosensing applications. I am also interested in developing new nanofabrication techniques, in nanofluidics and in the implementation of surface chemistry to improve sensing applications.
I am currently pursuing a postoc as a Wenner-Gren Fellow in Prof. Cees Dekker´s group at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. I was previously in Prof. Fredrik Höök's group at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden and before that at Lund University at the Nanometer Structure Concortium, directed by Prof. Lars Samuelsson.
