Experimental Biophysics & Optical Manipulation

We investigate the physical properties of both living cells and soft matter using an array of optical and micromanipulation approaches including optical tweezers, thermoplasmonics and micromanipulation.

We employ methods from physical chemistry, nanoscience and advanced imaging to investigate biological specimens ranging in size from molecular scales to macroscopic embryos and cancer spheroids.
