Research Interests

Dmitri Petrovykh

Dr. Dmitri Petrovykh is a physicist who has been working for nearly two decades on interdisciplinary projects with biologists, chemists, engineers, and materials scientists. He has extended his original expertise in using advanced surface analysis techniques to a broad range of fundamental and applied research topics, including functionalized surfaces, nanostructured materials for energy and catalysis, nanocharacterization, nanomedicine, bioanalytics, and biointerfaces.

Dmitri is particularly interested in two types of biointerfaces: those between biological molecules and surfaces and those between cells and nanoparticles. Understanding and controlling such interactions will help to design customized biointerfaces for biotechnology and nanotechnology: biosensors, DNA microarrays (a.k.a. "DNA chips"), self-assembly of nanostructures, nanomedicine, and bioinspired applications in materials, energy, and catalysis.

Dmitri Y. Petrovykh has co-authored 63 publications (h-index=29 from >2800 citations) and 161 presentations.
