Research Interests / Job description
The research of this group is focused on development and miniaturisation of various biosensor platforms with applications in food and agricultural fields. We are integrating novel micro-/nano-structures and materials with biorecognition elements (DNA, antibodies, cells, enzymes and other (bio)receptors) for development novel diagnostic devices that address various challenges in the modern world.
The key areas of research are:
Biosensors and bioassay development.
Point of care (POC) devices.
Real-time monitoring systems for multianalyte analysis.
Whole cell biosensors.
Integration nanotechnology and biosensors applications.
