My PhD project, joint between the Department of Physics and the Deparment of Plant Sciences, focuses on exploiting DNA Nanotechnology approaches for biomimicry purposes, where I work with model membranes and biologically active material towards novel sensing platforms for the artificial cell initiative. I am particularly interested in replicating life-like behaviours in model systems by harnessing knowledge, techniques, and expertise from soft matter physics and synthetic biology. 

PhD Supervisors: Dr. Lorenzo Di Michele – Department of Physics and Prof. Jim Haseloff – Department of Plant Sciences
