Murali Krishna Ghatkesar is Assistant Professor at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. He obtained his PhD from University of Basel, Switzerland. He was postdoc at Caltech and University of Virginia in the USA before taking the present position. He won Swiss National Science Foundation and Novartis Foundation fellowships. His research interest lies at the nexus of physics and biology covering the fields of M/NEMS, Micro/nanofluidics and Nanobiotechnology. The major contributions being resonating modes of microcantilever in liquid, increasing mass sensitivity with higher resonating modes and time-resolved measurements of membrane protein-ligand interactions. Presently his focus is on fabrication and applications of hollow microcantilever AFM pipette for dispensing, aspiration, weighing and imaging.
