I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Antwerp in the field of non-thermal plasma medicine. My research aims to understand plasma-cell interactions and develop non-thermal plasma systems for cancer immunotherapy. 

Topics of Investigation:

  • Characterisation of plasma treatment regimes for biological applications
  • Induction of immunogenic cell death (ICD) for cancer immunotherapy
  • Modulation of tumor-expressing immunosuppressive signals
  • Plasma effects on tumor microenvironment (TME)
  • Plasma effects on epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis
  • Combination cancer therapies with plasma
  • Plasma-induced cell death mechanisms
