Yera Ussembayev is a postdoctoral researcher at LCP research group. After obtaining PhD degree, he has been working on microscopy imaging, optical trapping and electrophoresis of nanoparticles, liquid crystal superstructures, light absorption and emission by quantum dots. Yera obtained MSc in Nanobiophotonics from Friedrich-Schiller-University, Jena, Germany. During his Master thesis, he developed plasmonic nanostructures for cell transfection and detection of vitamins. Following his graduation, he joined Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, to research biomolecular nanomotors involved in cell motility and DNA-processing machinery. Afterwards Yera was invited in Ghent University, Belgium, to study the interaction of electromagnetic fields with different nanoparticles for light-emitting and biosensing applications.
