About

I am a highly skilled, motivated, creative and team-oriented chemist with a strong background of organic synthesis. My current project involves the design and synthesis of fluorescent multi-glycosylated graphene oxide (GO), phorphyrins and cucurbiturils based nanocarriers with special focus on the delivery of antigens for vaccination purposes (e.g. cancer or infectious diseases vaccines). It combines synthetic organic, supramolecular and polymer chemistry for designing and synthesis of novel organic and inorganic/organic hybrid, nanostructured functional materials with potential applications in the areas of photonics, photocatalysis, bionanotechnology such as live cell imaging and theranostic nanomedicine, polymeric opto-electronic devices (LEDs, solid state lighting and photovoltaic devices), chemo- and bio-sensors, molecular switches.
