Research interests

Within the scope of my research, I try to unravel the unique properties of spider silk responsible for its exceptional ability to support peripheral nerve regeneration. I combine methods such as mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, and atomic force microscopy, with in vitro studies to determine the crucial chemical, structural, and morphological properties of spider silk.
