|My research focuses on the development of electrochemical imaging and chemical and biological sensor technologies, and my group has recently developed photoelectrochemical imaging with high spatiotemporal resolution. This measurement technology has shown great potential in the functional imaging of living cells and is expected to aid the understanding of disease mechanisms and biological processes.

Dr Steffi Krause gained her PhD in 1994 at the Humboldt-University of Berlin working on the development and characterisation of a field-effect oxygen sensor. Her postdoctoral research at the Universities of Newcastle and Glasgow focused on the development of new biosensor principles. She worked as a Lecturer and later EPSRC Advanced Research Fellow at the Chemistry Department of Sheffield University from 1997 to 2004 and then moved to the Materials Department at Queen Mary. Her research interest is in the photoelectrochemical imaging of thin films and living cells and the development of chemical and biological sensors.
