Reserach Vision

Our research interests focuses on nanopore design to program bioinspired and adaptive transport. (Polymer) functionalization of spatially confined nanopores, nanopore wetting and charge control, innovative nanoporous material architecture design as well as automated design procedures are the key elements for this research. Based on this expertise we develop model systems, and solve challenges in the context of water management, energy conversion and monitoring. Our long term vision is to close the performance gap of transport control abilities between natural and technological nanopores / membranes allowing gated, selective, directed and active transport in three dimensional complex hierarchical systems.
