In my research group, we are particularly inspired by how nature manages complex interactions at interfaces and self-assembles functional bionanomaterials. Therefore, we use bioengineering approaches to both study and mimic these processes. Specifically, we use genetic engineering techniques to design novel peptides/proteins or virus particles and then use them to create functional nanostructures for regenerative medicine, therapeutics, biosensing and energy generation.
