Research interests

My educational background lies in Microbiology and Biotechnology. I’m experienced in the development of various application-oriented in vitro biofilm models and biofilm assessment, which are applied for screening and developing novel antimicrobial compounds and materials. My research interests are focused on understanding bacteria-material interactions and designing new approaches to prevent/treat biofilm infections.
