Research interests: 
  • Structure, dynamics and phase transitions in charged Yukawa-like colloidal systems
  • Structure, properties and interactions of model nanoparticles and their applications in biology and medicine
  • Applications of Laser Scanning Confocal Microscopy techniques and Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy to studies of properties and dynamics of nanoparticles in crowded complex systems, membranes and living cells
  • Structure and dynamics of complex soft matter systems studied by means of scattering of light (Photon Correlation Spectroscopy and Fabry-Perot Interferometry), synchrotron radiation (Small Angle X-ray scattering and X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy), neutrons (Small Angle Neutron Scattering) and Raman spectroscopy (including Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering)
  • Structure and dynamics of supercooled liquids and glasses
  • Effects of high pressure on structure, dynamics and properties of complex systems and living cells studied by means of PCS, FPI, LSCM, FCS, and SANS
