In my research, I use tiny nanoparticles manufactured from a highly abundant and sustainable bioresource, wood. They assemble into interesting nanostructures that resemble the DNA helix. Uniquely, this creates structural colour with the potential to replace conventional toxic colorants. I engineer the creation of these nanostructures to be applied as cheap coatings providing colour and durability.
I am currently conducting doctoral studies in the Biobased Colloids and Materials (BiCMat) research group.
My research focusses on liquid crystalline cellulose nanocrystal suspensions and the formation of helically structured chiral nematic order in assembled films and coatings
