With an interdisciplinary background of nano-science and biotechnology, my research interest lies in exploring nano-enabled approaches for targeted therapeutic and diagnostic pre-clinical interventions. In my present role as Postdoctoral Researcher, I am engaged in synthesis, characterization and bio-evaluation of diverse nano formulations for ultrasound assisted targeted delivery of diagnostic nanomaterials as well as microRNA/suicide genes to orthotopic tumor models. Prior to my affiliation with Stanford, I played the role of Head of Research and Development at E-Spin Nanotech Pvt. Ltd. where I led projects to develop nanofiber based masks, diagnostic kits and devices. I believe that over the years of my interdisciplinary research experience in industry as well as academy, I have gained a holistic research aptitude with translation significance.
