Edward Nelson is an experimental nano-biophysicist with a background in single-molecule AFM. He has a physics degree from the University of Rochester and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Notre Dame where his interests included biomolecule interactions with synthetic nanopores for next generation DNA and protein sequencing, optical tweezer lithography, and in situ imaging of bacterial cells by liquid S/TEM. He joined Nanosurf in 2015 where he specializes in correlative AFM applications. He has nearly 10 years of AFM and single-molecule experience and over 15 years of nanotechnology experience. He also has an interest in molecular gastronomy and is an amateur zymurgist.
