Department of Biomedical Engineering
Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
Following a Bachelors in Systems Design Engineering at University of Waterloo and a Masters in Biochemistry at McMaster University, I completed my PhD at University of Toronto in 2012 in Biomedical Engineering. Broadly, our focus is on developing novel nanomedicine approaches to meet unmet needs in treating and diagnosing disease. We strive to use good engineering principles to iteratively design, synthesize, characterize, test and validate next generation nanoparticles and biosensors with the ultimate goal of making a translational impact on improving human health. Developing safer, organic nanoparticles that will allow superior treatment options for cancer therapy is a major research thrust.
