Research Interest

I work at a crossroad of engineering and life sciences to create affordable solutions for different life science/healthcare problems with aim of improving human health and wellbeing. I am interested in applying the principle of engineering to innovate, design, manufacture and deploy medical devices. My research area includes but not limited to bio-inspired design, micro/nanofluidics, micro/nanomanufacturing and additive manufacturing. The current activities includes development of microfluidics based diagnostic devices, microdevices for tissue engineering applications and others .
