I'm interested in pharmaceutical nanotechnology and non-invasive drug delivery systems with a particular emphasis on tailoring liposomes and nano-carriers for various drugs through different routes of administration. I’m highly experienced in elaboration and appraisal procedures and techniques of nano and micro-sized pharmaceutical carriers among them; nanoliposomes, nanoparticles, nanocrystals, nanocapsules, microporous silica and micelles. Mathematical optimization and assessment of delivery systems covers various routes of administration such as oral, transdermal and ocular is considered an area of my specialty.
