Research Interests

  • My primary area of research interest is biomedical engineering, with an emphasis on biomaterials and related device-tissue interactions. My current project is in the cardiovascular domain and involves the development of novel protein-derived therapeutics. Our goal is to develop a drug delivery method for these therapeutics using varying release mechanisms to prevent intimal hyperplasia while providing an environment for healthy endothelial cell function. This approach will help prevent both restenosis and later stage thrombosis formation following vascular surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention.
