Richa Pandey is pursuing her doctorate at the Department of Physical Electronics, Tel Aviv University, with the motivation to find effective yet cheap ways of democratising diagnostic devices.
Her research involves design, fabrication and testing of whole cell and enzymatic biosensors based on nanoparticle modified polymers for realising flexible diagnostic platforms.
Beside this, modelling and simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics™ is an integral part of her research work.
Previously she acquired a master in Nanoscience and Technology, during which she explored nanoparticle based non- enzymatic electrochemical biosensors.
