"So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." - Steve Jobs

Protein-Based Materials

Synthesizing, characterizing, and developing new smart bio-responsive materials based on globular proteins.

Protein-Nanoparticle Interactions

Understanding the nanoparticles - protein interactions and their effect on the materials micro and macrostructures and translating these correlations in developing new smart biomaterials.

Translating Protein Characteristics

Using protein inherited properties such as their, structure, functionality, interaction with the environment, and (un)folding nano-mechanics in synthesizing novel protein-based materials.
