Dr. Rinaldi-Ramos’s research is focused on advancing the understanding and biomedical applications of suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles. Of particular interest are situations where the particles respond to magnetic fields by rotating, exerting forces/torques on biological structures, or dissipating the energy of the magnetic field in the form of heat. Work in Dr. Rinaldi-Ramos’s lab spans theoretical and simulation investigation of magnetic nanoparticle response to magnetic fields, nanoparticle synthesis and modification, characterization of nanoparticle physical, chemical and magnetic properties, and testing the interactions of magnetic nanoparticles with cells and tissues.
