Nonappa (Ph.D., Docent, MRSC)


I take inspiration from Nature´s extraordinary ability to design structures with ultimate precision. Particularly, I am fascinated by tiny, invisible to naked eye, yet powerful organisms, such as virus particles. They follow the principle of economy, efficiency and error-free structure formation at multiple length scales using sub-unit based self-assembly. To achieve this goal, I use nanoparticles that are atomically precise and develop methods to prepare new generation two dimensional (2D) nanosheets, synthetic hollow capsids, nanowires for application in optics, photonics, catalysis and sensing. Simulataneously, I am also developing Extracellular matrix (ECM) and nanoscaffold design for breast cancer therapy. Finally, I use cryo-Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Electron Tomography to visualize structures at atomic resolution.
