Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests lie in developing novel engineered materials for advanced drug delivery systems, such as supramolecular hydrogels, porous silicon and porous polymers, and drug nanocrystals.  I have specialized in formulation development and pharmaceutical engineering, with a strong emphasis on leveraging functional materials properties to target molecular aspects of human disease.
