I am a scientist, bioengineer, and problem solver. I focus on the understanding and control of cellular processes at technological interfaces. I am an advocate of using Open Source Hardware in labs and editor of the Journal of Open Hardware, as well as DocuBricks founder.

Research Interests

I am interested in research and teaching in the areas of Biointegration (e.g. microfluidics, bioelectronics, integrated acoustics, cell analysis), Biophysics (e.g. self-organiation, nano-biotechnology, complex systems), and biomaterials with special focus on the understanding and controlling of cellular processes at technological interfaces.
