  • 2006-2010: PhD, University of Miami (Advisor: Roger M. Leblanc)
  • 2000-2005: BSc, MSc (Chemistry Hns.), Panjab University (Honors School), India
Research Interests: Chemistry at nanoscale can lead to better understanding of biological processes. I am broadly interested in biosensing and biotechnology.

    Research Objectives:

  • Optimization of immobilization startegies on microcantilevers for biosensing.
  • Self-assembly of molecules at the air-water interface for development of immobilization strategies and learning interfacial processes.
  • Investigating interaction of proteins with nanoparticles for inventing therapeutics and/or diagnostic tools.
