The subject of the Ph.D. thesis is in the domains of (electro)microfluidics and (bio)nanotechnology. The project will work towards developing methods for extracting information on the chemical and biological state of microfluidic samples (e.g. the presence of biomarkers) by analyzing the behaviour of individual metallic nanoparticles injected into the sample. These particles are characterised by their stochastic microscopic movements, their optical signal and their response to the microscale electric field.
