We are a dynamic group working at the interface of chemical engineering and materials science for healthcare applications. My research interests include polymer and nanomaterial-based antimicrobial coatings and hydrogels, biomimetic-inspired antimicrobial surfaces, design of antimicrobial peptides, antimicrobial peptide-based coatings, and diagnostics for infection detection. 

Interested PhD students can contact me via email or LinkedIn. I am open to B.E./M.E./M.Sc. students with background in Chemical engineering or Materials Science or Nanotechnology or Polymer Science. Chemistry students are also welcome to apply.
