My current field of research is developing a new nanoplasmonics-enabled optical approach for quantification of envelope components (specifically, GSLs such as GM1) of biological nanoparticles like viruses. This will give us a novel robust tool to study the surface of biological nano/micro-organisms, while breaking the concentration limits of conventional quantification methods. An example of its applications is studying the surface of HIV-1, at a single-virus level, on patient-derived samples and investigating the performance of drugs on disabling the infectious virus.
In my free time, I enjoy playing and listening to classical music, watching movies and reading novels. Some of my favorite musics are western classical musics such as Beethoven, European traditional musics such as Celtic or Irish fiddle and Spanish Flamenco, and my special favorite, Persian traditional music in works of great people such as M.R. Shajarian, H. Alizadeh, K. Kalhor, Kamkars, K. Saket, etc.
