Dr. Diego Krapf

Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering


Diego Krapf was born in Rosario, Argentina. During his Ph.D. research, he worked in the group of Prof. Amir Sa’ar in Israel on infrared optics on nanostructured materials. Then, Prof. Krapf joined the research group of Prof. Cees Dekker in the Netherlands, where he focused on single-molecule biophysics using solid-state nanopores. Since August 2007, he serves as a faculty member in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Colorado State University. Prof. Krapf is also a core faculty member in the School of Biomedical Engineering and in the School of Advanced Materials Discovery. His current research interests include anomalous diffusion and stochastic processes, 1/f noise, and cellular biophysics at the single-molecule level, with particular emphasis on intracellular dynamics and sperm capacitation.
