Hi, I am a postdoctoral fellow in Karp Lab. My current research interests involve development of next generation biomaterials, including particles and hydrogels for drug delivery. I received a PhD in 2013 from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, where I studied under the supervision of Prof. Rinti Banerjee. My work was focused on the development and evaluation of stimuli-responsive nanoparticles for the delivery of single and combinatorial anti-cancer drugs, both systemically as well as through non-invasive routes. Other than research, I am very passionate about music and have received formal training in Indian Classical Vocal Music (Khayal style).

I’m a post-doctoral fellow in Karp Laboratory developing bio-adhesives for medical applications. I received my PhD in biological sciences in Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (2010). While in KAIST, I studied under Professor Tae Gwan Park investigating biomaterials for wide variety of biomedical applications including drug/gene delivery and imaging for cancer therapy, injectable hydrogels for tissue regeneration, bio-inspired adhesive polymers for medical applications, carbon nanotube fiber fabrication, drug-eluting balloon catheter and stent for ischemic heart disease, and microneedle-based drug/gene delivery.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Karp Lab focusing on establishing platform technologies—to target primary and metastatic prostate cancer—that can be rapidly translated to the clinic. This primarily involves developing nanoparticle-based approaches to deliver drug-loaded particles to sites of cancer metastasis using cells of the immune system as vehicles. I completed my PhD in Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, where as a graduate student I was involved in designing and fabricating nanotechnology-based approaches for regenerating neurons and modulating the behavior of brain tumor cells.  I was also involved in designing biosensors to detect ultrasmall levels of breast cancer biomarkers. I like to travel, bike around Boston, and talking to people—about science and otherwise.
