Raphaela Silva

PhD Students


Research Interests

Raphaela is interested in the development of electrochemical transistors and their interaction with biological systems. She aims at developing biosensors of easy read-out to be applied for clinical and point-of-care diagnosis. Her interests also lie in the fabrication of microelectronic devices and the electrical properties of organic semiconductors.
