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.
