Current Research Activities

Engineering sciences

2017-2019 Organic synthesis and characterization of fluorescent nanoparticles and their application as pH-sensitive sensors for bacterial growth detection on glass substrates by confocal microscopy. Pr. Rachel Méallet-Renault, PI, Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d'Orsay, France, and collaboration with Dr. Bianca Sclavi LCQB - Sorbonne Université and Dr. Gilles Clavier PPSM - ENS Paris-Saclay. Study of different surfaces prepared by: electro-polymerizor photolithography; either to kill or to repeal bacteria, their efficiency was studied by confocal microscopy. 2016-2017 Synthesis and characterization of protein-directed Quantum Dots and study of their cytotoxicity in vitro. Prof. Christian Girard, PI, Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale, Paris, France. 2013-2015 Organic synthesis and characterization of porphyrins for organic solar cells. Prof. Fernando Langa, PI, Institute of Nanoscience, Nanotechnology and Molecular materials, (INAMOL), University of Castilla La-Mancha, Toledo, Spain.
