My research interest is electrochemistry, in particular in non-conventional media, such as in two-phase (oil-water) systems without electrodes or external power sources. These systems can be utilized in, e.g. separation and analytical applications. Another area of interest is applying physical chemistry in pharmaceutical applications such as drug delivery systems. This means the study of membrane transport, liposomes and nanoparticulates, for example, which is mainly carried out in collaboration with domestic and foreign pharmaceutical faculties.
