Mission statement

 My passion is to seek for new knowledge and methods for future personalized 

medicine. We are interested in understanding and assessing mechanisms of

 biophysics by developing in-vitro, 3D bioimaging and computational modelling tools for assessing the cellular functions.

We study biophysics,

 especially electrophysiology and biomechanics using and developing 

microscopy, bioimpedance, patch clamp, and multichannel electrode arrays


We develop new methods for 3D bioimaging

 and image-based assessment of cellular and tissue functions developing 

multimodal and hybrid imaging systems with optical, electric and X-ray 

3D imaging methodsWe develop computational models to decipher biophysics integrating in-silico and in-vitro human induced stem cell personalized and drug screening platforms. 

Research fields

Biomedical Engineering, bioimaging, computational biophysics, Body on Chip Technologies
