Domna Kotsifaki
Assistant Professor of Physics at Duke Kunshan University

Dr. Kotsifaki’s research focuses on interface between nanophotonics and biophotonics to gain a better understanding of the processes involved to manipulate nanometer-sized particles using light at single particle level for the development of new detection techniques. Her research interests up to now are concerned mainly the study and control of dielectric nanoparticle/bio-particles, investigating fluid dynamics using plasmonic-based approaches, development of new sensing platforms, technologies enabled by optical resonators/metamaterial, implementation of novel techniques for new therapeutic approaches, etc. She has participated in several research projects, and she has coordinated Greek and Japanese research projects (as PI) related to bio-applications based on plasmonic nanostructures. She has published several peer-reviewed international journals, peer-reviewed international conference proceedings and book chapters.
