2D quantum materials studied by scanning probe methods

In this project, the student will investigate the electronic behavior of quantum materials. We are interested in understanding the electronic correlations leading to observation of quantum phases such as topological insulators, Weyl semimetals, and intrinsic magnetism in materials such as WTe2 and N...

Biochemical and molecular characterization of Cytochrome P450 (CYPs) from extremophilic sources and their biotechnological applications

Cytochrome P450 enzymes (CYPs) are heme-containing monooxygenases, broadly distributed among living organisms, which play crucial roles in natural product biosynthesis e.g. steroids and the degradation of xenobiotics e.g. drug metabolism. P450s are considered amongst the most versatile biocatalysts ...

Quantifying the mechanical properties of myocardium in cases of heart failure by preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)

Preserved Ejection Fraction (pEF) is a condition in which the heart’s ability to pump blood throughout the body is reduced. It is characterised by a stiffening of the myocardium (cardiac tissue), leading to the heart not relaxing to its full size before contracting for the next heartbeat. This res...
