    PhD-student: Mechanical Metamaterials for Positioning

    Upon loading and unloading wafers in nanolithography machines, friction occurs between the wafer and its support. While some friction is required to fixate the wafer, inhomogeneous deformations and stresses that …

    PhD-student: Ubiquitin-mediated protein processing at the single-molecule level, using optical tweezers and fluorescence

    Protein chains undergo dramatic changes during their lifetime, beyond their initial folding. Eukaryotic cells possess an intricate ubiquitin protein ‘labelling’ system to regulate these changes. The aim of this project …
