Hi! Nice to meet you!

I'm Xin Shi, a postdoctoral researcher @Cees Dekker Lab, TU Delft

DNA nanoturbine

We designed and built a nanoscale water turbine, drove it with transmembrane salt-gradients or voltage, transduce local free energy to mechanical work.

Active DNA nanorotors on Nanopores

A minimalistic active DNA rotor that converts transmembrane potentials into mechanical work.

Label-free DNA sensing with Plasmonic nanopores

we combine a plasmonic nanoantenna with a solid-state nanopore and demonstrate that single DNA molecules can be efficiently delivered to the plasmonic hotspots and detected in a label-free manner by monitoring the backscattered light.

A-star Snake

Have fun with this simple Snake game with infinite periodic boundaries and randomly appearing walls, plus an animation of path finding algorithm A* when pressing the space bar.

Conway's Game of Life

The Game of Life, also known simply as Life, is a cellular automaton devised by the British mathematician John Horton Conway in 1970.
