I am Early Stage Researcher (ESR) 12 under the Initial Training Network Nanomotion and work on my PhD project within the Nanoscale Function Group at the Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research at University College Dublin, Ireland. The research is being undertaken in cooperation with University of Aveiro, Portugal . My project focuses on the growth of DNA nucleobase crystals, the investigation of their piezoelectric and ferroelectric properties using piezoresponse force microscopy and ultrahigh resolution imaging in liquids with low-noise atomic force microscopy (see work package 3c).

I graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Technical Physics from Graz University of Technology, Austria. My master thesis at the Institute for Electron Microscopy and Nanoanalysis enhanced my knowledge and interest in material science on the micro- and nanoscale and provided a profound background for my current research field of functional characterisation of biomaterials with advanced scanning probe techniques.

If you have any questions in relation to my research or professional background, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
