    I am a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. David Issadore Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTUA), India and Ph.D. from University of Tennessee (Knoxville) under the supervision of Dr. Ramki Kalyanaraman. My current research work focuses on scale-up of droplet microfluidic techniques for drug delivery systems.

    I work on oxide ceramics, conducting experiments (most extensively in sintering, grain growth and microstructure control) and computational simulations (first-principles and empirical potential calculations, and mathatical modeling). I also work on field-assisted sintering and field-induced instability.

    David R Busch

    I am an experimental physicist, focused on applications of diffuse optical spectroscopy and imaging to human diseases. My work has involved instrument design, construction, and control, and advanced data analysis techniques.

    Most of my past projects involved detection and staging of breast cancer with multi-modal imaging (esp. MRI); my current work focuses on brain injury during ischemic stroke and ECMO therapy. I am involved in projects applying diffuse optics to a variety of other conditions, including muscle disease and brain function.
