Design of engineered delivery systems: from nanoparticles to digestive health
Additional research interests: application of nanofluidics and non-linear electro-kinetic phenomena for advanced material functionalization. Some other projects include biosensors development for biosecurity applications, modeling of the microbial population dynamics in extreme environments; studying of pathogens adhesion to the nano-structured surfaces during biofilm development and investigating the effects of electromagnetic field on bacterial inactivation.
