Current Projects

Development of biomolecular motor-powered devices:

  • Initiated theoretical considerations and simulations for optimizing a biocomputation network that solves the Exact Cover Problem.
  • Programmable gates for molecular motor powered computation devices.
  • Started the research direction of filament multiplication techniques for applications requiring large numbers of microtubules.
  • Leading the development of fully automated high throughput measurements of in vitro motility assays including programming a MATLAB software for the automated evaluation of in vitro motility assays.
  • Established the expression of kinesin-1 in insect cells.

Supervising PhD, and master projects:

  • Developing a lab on chip microsensor for the diagnosis of leukemia.
  • Establishing fully automated high throughput measurements of in vitro motility assays.

Finished projects

Development of biomolecular motor-powered devices:

  • A molecular motor powered device solving the subset sum problem.
  • Initiated the development on a diagnostic point-of-care device for early leukemia diagnostics.
  • Developing a MATLAB software for the modelling of microtubule movement.
  • In vitro reconstitution of transport on crowded microtubules.

Coordinating an international collaboration:

  • Sample solution constraints on motor- driven diagnostic nanodevices.

Supervising bachelor, master and diploma projects:
