Vitor Brasiliense

I joined the Van Duyne group in February 2018, right after completing my PhD in University Paris Diderot (Paris VII). During my PhD I worked on the development of opto-electrochemical methods to study nanoparticles at a single object level. Now as a Postdoc I plan to take single entity studies to the molecular level, by using electrochemical tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy and imaging to derive nano- and molecular-scale information about catalysts.
