Our Research Interests
Nature evolved to have the unbelievable capabilities to produce nanoscale machines with incredible accuracy and functionality. In Beck’s lab, we experimentally study the physical mechanism responsible for these fantastic capabilities. Using X-ray scattering, microscopy, spectroscopy, and other biophysical techniques, we target the nano length-scale biophysics. We further combine advancing theories originating from soft-matter and statistical mechanics physics for the study of various self-assembled systems in and out of thermal equilibrium. Examples include intrinsically disordered proteins, amphiphiles self-assembly, intermediate filaments, and myelin sheaths biophysics.
