Research Interests:

My PhD thesis is focused on the synthesis and conjugation/functionalisation of nanoparticle-systems and their applications in early detection of circulating tumor cells and treatment of diseases such as leukemia.



- chemical synthesis of nanoparticles;

- nanoparticle characterisation by UV-Vis Absorbtion Spectroscopy, DLS and Zeta-potential measurements, Raman spectroscopy, Fluorescence spectroscopy;

- molecular biology techniques, such as: PCR, gel electrophoresis, cell culturing etc.
