Comments My current research focuses on bacterial biosilicification (silica biomineralization), the biological process through which soluble silicic acid, Si(OH)4, is polymerized intracellularly and deposited as insoluble silica, SiO2. I am also working for the development of new biomaterials by integrating biomolecules with silicon-based materials (including semiconductor devices).
