Research expertise

  • Biophysics and biochemistry of lipids and membranes. Structure of sphingolipid/cholesterol domains. Lamellar and nonlamellar states of lipids and amphiphiles: vesicles, micelles and hexagonal aggregates.
  • Protein-Lipid interaction: integral proteins of the inner mitochondrial membrane. Membrane interaction of intrinsically disordered proteins: membrane induced structural transitions of synuclein and related proteins and peptides.
  • Spectroscopy of biomembranes: Deuterium and phosphorous NMR, spin label Electron spin resonance. Calorimetry, circular dichroism, and fluorescence spectroscopy.
