Personal profile

Research interests

My current research focuses on biological modelling specific to the anterior eye, aiming to deepen our understanding of cellular pathways and their responses to various stimuli and environmental challenges. By employing a mix of methodologies, including electrophysiology, flow cytometry, and diverse biological modelling techniques, I aim to unravel the complexities of cellular responses. This exploration holds the potential to guide the development of ocular drug delivery systems.

Previously, I conducted a research project on optoelectronic nanomaterials for biomedical applications within the field of biomaterials tailored for ophthalmic environments. My investigation involved novel approaches to developing a variable focus lens system by harnessing the dielectric anisotropy of liquid crystals and leveraging the optoelectronic properties of two-dimensional transition metal carbides and/or nitrides known as MXenes.

Supervisory Interests

I have been involved in the supervision, mentoring, and training of final-year and master's students exploring biomaterials, targeted therapeutics, and biological assays.
