Research Profiles

Primary Supervisor
Tjaart Krüger

I am part of the biophysics research group.

My project involves extending the current single-molecule spectroscopy setup in order to perform single-particle tracking, allowing us to study freely diffusing photosynthetic proteins - in solution and eventually in a natural membrane. This is important as it brings us closer to performing single-molecule experiments in-vivo
