My name is Peter Eaton, and I have been working with Atomic Force Microscopy for more than 15 years. I am currently a Researcher at the Molecular Medicine Institute (IMM) in the University of Lisboa, Portugal. I am the co-author (with Paul West of AFMWorkshop) of the book Atomic Force Microscopy, published in 2010 by Oxford University Press. I have collaborated with researchers in the UK, France, Spain, Brazil, Argentina, Portugal, the USA and Germany in AFM. I have taught AFM around the globe, and am the coordinator of the Porto AFM Training Workshop (running from 2011 onwards).

In addition to development of research and education in Atomic Force Microscopy, my interests include:

Antimicrobial peptides derived from amphibians

  • Nano particle preparation and characterisation
  • Natural Products
  • Biosensors
  • Antiviral and anticancer peptides
  • Scanning electron microscopy

A complete list of my research papers can be found along with my academic CV here. I have co-authored more than 60 scientific works.

I am happy to collaborate scientifically in interesting projects or carry out scientific consultancy in the field of atomic force microscopy.
