I am a research scientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. My overarching research career goal is to investigate the interface of material science, biology, and medicine, and to invent technology for addressing the major unmet needs in health care. My areas of interests are in nanomedicine and nanotechnology with an emphasis on polymeric drug delivery systems and biomedical implants .My research focuses on leveraging biomaterials to develop stimuli-responsive hydrogels and long-acting injectables. I have been awarded Commonwealth scholarship, CSIR senior research fellowship, and DBT postgraduate fellowship. As a part of the Commonwealth scholarship, I had the opportunity to work as a visiting PhD fellow at University of Bristol, U.K. The research mainly focused on the development of nanotextiles from polymeric nanofibers for vascular graft applications. The interdisciplinary nature of my work led to several publications, three US patents, and a potential commercial product currently being considered for translation as COVID nasal spray developed at Brigham and Women's hospital.
