As a PhD student conducting research in the field of (Predictive) Nanotoxicology, I wish to pinpoint the key molecular events in the interactions between nanomaterials and cells, understand how they lead to diseases, and devise simple tests to predict them.

I enjoy combining advanced live-cell optical imaging (STED, FLIM, 2-photon microscopy, hyperspectral imaging, …), image analysis and quantification, modelling, and testing newly-designed fluorescent probes with complementary approaches to resolve burning issues, as we successfully accomplished in the H2020 project SmartNanoTox.
