Curriculum Vitae (pdf)

Research Interests
  • Engineering implantable biomedical devices from synergistic research efforts bringing together micro/ nano fabrication, microfluidics and biomedical technologies.
  • Engineering ultra-thin films and surface modification based on reactive and stimuli-responsive polymeric materials to impart desired properties like hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity, conductivity, biocompatibility, anti-fouling, permeability etc. for tissue engineering.
  • Biomimicry of thin membranes and films found in the human body and in nature.
  • Research enabling micro fabrication thin film technologies transition into the biomedical domain.
