Biophysics & Nanoscience

We are interested in elucidating fundamental biophysical aspects of neurons, in-organic nanostructures and their interaction with fluids, and sensor interface physics both from a theoretical and experimental perspective. We solve partial differential equations, use finite element tools and employ multi-physics simulations to dissect different physical contributions to signal generation – both in the context of neuroscience and nanoscience.
