My research interests involve development of biocompatible, biodegradable biosensors for reliable long-term continuous metabolite monitoring, and dealing with the interaction of different bacteria and proteins at materials surface. My research experience involve development of smart microfluidic chips with incorporated smart sensors, wearable and implantable smart sensors for continuous monitoring of biologically relevant analytes incorporating in one platform of solid contact ion sensors (H , Na , K , Pb2 , Cl-, Ca2 ) and biosensors such as glucose, lactate, oxygen. My current focus is on development of miniaturised, wearable and implantable electrochemical and optical sensors for the diagnosis of surgical site infection, smart catheter platform for detection of infected urine and development of new types of smart materials with incorporated actuation and sensing capabilities using 3D printing with 2 photon polymerization (direct laser writing).
