Scientific Interests

My research focuses on the development of AFM/FFM and related experimental protocols to make measurements that are otherwise challenging and in general, to continue bringing new ideas to the development and enhancement of AFM and similar technologies. I use AFM and related instrumentation to study nanotribology, nanofluidics, cell and soft matter mechanics, protein-protein interactions, and for surface characterization.
