Research summary

Dr Steffi Krause gained her PhD in 1994 at the Humboldt-University of Berlin working on the development and characterisation of a field-effect oxygen sensor. Her postdoctoral research at the Universities of Newcastle and Glasgow focused on the development of new biosensor principles. She worked as a Lecturer and later EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow at the Chemistry Department of Sheffield University from 1997 to 2004 and then moved to the Materials Department at Queen Mary. Her research interest is in impedance and potential imaging of thin films and biologial samples using Light-Addressable Potentiometric Sensors and the development of enzyme detectors for medical applications.
