Joe Lacey is a research student working towards a PhD in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology.

His PHD project title is: Enhanced single molecule detection with integrated 2D materials. His first supervisor is Prof Tuomas Knowles and his second supervisor is Prof Stephan Hofmann.

This project will make use of the unique properties offered by 2D materials, as well as, tailoring them in the form of heterostructures to provide platforms for examining the elementary constituents of complex heterogenous biomolecular mixtures. Such functionality will be achieved by employing state-of-the-art micro/nano fabrication, producing 2D incorporated fluid manipulation devices. The development of which will provide unique insights into various biomedical questions, from cancer and developmental biology to the development of novel immunotherapeutic strategies and probing the onset of neurodegeneration.

Joe is part of the Chemistry department and she is a member of Hughes Hall College.
