Hi - I got my BS in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University and MSc in Regenerative Medicine from Manipal University. I joined Praveenís lab for my Masterís thesis and I am currently interning here. I work on synthesis, fabrication, in-vitro and in-vivo evaluation of charged polymer nanofiber scaffolds to scavenge cell death byproducts from stored blood to reduce transfusion-related complications such as Acute Lung Injury. My research interests include smart biomaterials for drug delivery and tissue engineering, cell-material interfaces, stem cell biology and regenerative medicine.
In my spare time I like to listen to muscic and play the guitar, mostly blues-rock. I also enjoy a good game of table tennis.
