Personal profile

Research interests

My principal research interests are in the field of polymeric biomaterials. My current focus is on combining newly developed hydrogels, scaffold materials and cells with biofabrication technologies to prepare 3D tissue constructs for regenerative medicine or to be used as in vitro models. Other research activities include the study of delivery devices for drugs and vaccines. My future aim is to continue advancing biomaterials-based technology platforms for tissue engineering and drug delivery purposes.
