Description of Research

My research program focuses on the fabrication of micro- and nanostructures of predefined geometry and dimensions by hydrogel template strategy. The hydrogel template strategy enables the fabrication of homogeneous shape-adaptable micro- and nanostructures of different mechanical and chemical attributes. Such micro-/nanoconstructs are being studied for their biodistribution, imaging, and drug delivery applications.

Major Areas of Research

Nanofabricated homogeneous multifunctional systems for drug delivery and bioimaging
