Aiming to personalized health wellness, I am exploring followings 

  • Nano-structures 

  • Nano-enabling smart sensing technology, 

  • Nano-medicine and drug delivery systems,

  • Nano-Theranostics,

  • Smart analytical systems,

  • Point-of-care sensing devices for health care,

  • Numerical aspects for health wellness,

  • Personalized Health wellness. 

Presently, I am exploring “nano-biotechnology assisted technologies for health wellness" as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Department of Natural Sciences, Division of Science, Art, & Mathematics of Florida Polytechnic University, Lakeland, FL, USA.

I am determined to execute multi-dimensional approaches, both collaborative and personal, of teaching, research, and services to produce highly skilled and intelligent students for next generation.

My research interests include nano-technology/engineering, design & develop smart nanostructures, theoretical simulation to optimize design and parameters, introducing new analytical systems in research, miniaturized sensing systems, electrochemical biosensors, point-of-care sensing devices,  nanocarries for drug delivery, nano-therapeutics for CNS diseases, delivery of therapeutic agent to the brain, exploring personalized nano-medicines, research toward in-vivo to develop therapy, and related areas of health care monitoring.
