Research Area

Biomaterials for Pharmaceutical Product Development

Research outline

Generating drug-loaded nanofibres to be used as starting material for a variety of drug delivery systems. Specifically, I am looking into harnessing nanofibre properties such as porosity, enhanced surface properties and mucoadhesive prospects for safer and more efficient delivery of drugs across mucosa membranes.


I am a pharmacist and worked as a Drug Information manager for a multinational pharmaceutical company, KRKA before starting my postgraduate studies. I completed my MSc with Distinction in Drug Delivery at Aston University. Presently I’m doing my research at UCL. This research looks into developing biomaterials typically within the nano range for various pharmaceutical applications. In addition to my research commitments at UCL, I represent research students on the UCL Academic Board.
