University College London


Research Project: Characterising competitive interactions and binding selectivity at bio-nano interfaces
Stefan Guldin (UCL), Stefano Agioletti-Uberti (Imperial)

Esther graduated with an MChem Chemistry with Study Year Abroad from the University of Bath, where her masters project focused on the investigation of Janus gold nanoparticle structures at the DPPC phospholipid monolayer. Her Erasmus year was spent at the University of Bordeaux studying the properties of ionic particles using molecular spectroscopic techniques. Esther has now joined the AdReNa group led by Stefan Guldin, and her PhD project looks at developing characterisation methods to reliably screen for superselectivity to biological targets.
