Overwiew

Beatriz’s research explores the multidisciplinary domain of bio-inspired nanotechnologies, working on the design, micro- and nanofabrication and surface chemistry of emerging nanostructures, to integrate them in diagnostic devices fit-for-purpose designed. She conducts research on Si-based nanotechnologies that involves fabrication of Si nanochannels via templated etching, differentially functionalised to site-specifically display receptors, and tune the electrochemical features of porous Si (pSi). Beatriz’s main interest currently focuses on exploring the potential of carbon-stabilised pSi, as well as other nanoporous materials, to develop high-performing electrochemical biosensors to suit diagnosis at each one of the steps involved in the dynamic biological process of infection.
