My current field of research is developing a nano-technology-based multi-modal approach for investigation (quantification and spatio-temporal tracking) of envelope components of 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 and resolution limits of conventional optical microscopies. An example of its applications is studying the surface of HIV-1, on patient-derived samples and investigating the performance of drugs on disabling the infectious virus, by studying the details of the viral surface molecules.
In my free time, I enjoy arts, especially playing and listening to classical music, and studying scientific philosophy. I actively follow the scientific news and support the science education and actions against prevalence of pseudo-science.
