My name is Kasia and I'm a tenure-track Assistant Professor and Rosalind Franklin Fellow at the University of Groningen. My group's primary research interest is in the field of experimental biophysics, but we explore many topics under this broad umbrella. For example, in addition to developing new methods to study membrane proteins, we research how chaperone proteins work by measuring their motions on the single-molecule level.
Below is a photograph of me with my newly installed C-trap optical tweezers setup from Lumicks, which enables us to perform cutting-edge single-molecule force and fluorescence-based experiments under a range of different conditions. I think you can see how excited I am about it!
