Advanced encapsulation methods for the fabrication of drug carriers. Controlled release of therapeutic delivery via oral and parenteral routes. Advances in technologies to tackle some of the major problems in human health.


Dr Maryam Parhizkar studied Mechanical Engineering at Brunel University and achieved her MEng degree in 2007. She then joined an engineering consultancy as a junior consultant and worked on a number of engineering and design projects.

Following a few years of experience in industry, she obtained her PhD in 2014 from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London. Her research focus was investigative studies on the production of microbubbles/scaffold using microfluidics and electrohydrodynamic techniques.

She was then appointed Research Associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, performing her main research on a project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) investigating new methods of delivery of an anticancer agent (Cisplatin), utilizing particles and microbubbles.
