Maity performs his post-doctoral research under the supervision of Prof. Wouter Roos in the Molecular Biophysics group of the Zernike Institute. He studies protein assemblies using an advanced microscopy approach which is called Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). In this technique a tiny needle is scanning over the surface to make a topographic image of the proteins. This allows to reach nanometer resolution in watery solutions and creates the possibility to manipulate the sample by exerting forces onto it.

The recent advances in this field, which Maity presented at the conference, together with his enthusiastic way of presenting led to the awarding of the prize.
