Research Interests: 

Having trained as a chemical engineer, i am interested in the translation of basic science into novel biomedical technologies. For this reason, I have been working at the interfaces between biology, chemistry and medicine.  In particular I have a special interest in the development of molecular imaging techniques that may allow clinicians in the future to diagnose cancer better and earlier.
