The research interest of Prof. Koch is functional aspects and structural diversity of biological surfaces, wetting phenomena in biological materials (superhydrophilic and superhydrophobic surfaces), molecular self-assembly and self-healing in biomaterials.
Prof. Kerstin Koch edited the Thematic Series in the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology:
Biological and bioinspired adhesion and friction (together with Prof. Stanislav N. Gorb)
Biomimetic materials (together with Prof. Wilhelm Barthlott)
