Profile Summary

I am a biophysicist with highly interdisciplinary skills across physics, chemistry, optical and electrical engineering. I'm currently interested in methodology development to study protein-protein interactions/protein aggregations at the single-molecule level. I'm also interested in deep mechanistic understandings of biological processes at the nanometer scale.
