Key research areas include:

(i) membrane dynamics of lipid droplets in normal and diseased liver focusing on the role of hepatic stellate cells in liver regeneration.

(ii) role of membranes and lipids in protein oligomerisation and (functional) amyloid formation

(iii) membrane dynamics during fertilization, focusing on sperm and oocyte membrane dynamics during the fusion process.

(iv) the development and application of lipidomic techniques to fundamental, applied, and clinical research.
