    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.

    I am a physician-researcher with a specific interest in acute care implementation science and improvement science. My areas of methodological expertise include mixed methods, qualitative research, and survey research. My areas of content expertise include patient handoffs and care transitions, human factors, critical care medicine, anesthesiology, and perioperative care.

    My lab's research overlaps cell biology, physiology, pharmacology, immunology, microbiology, and genetics. To understand how airway cells sense and respond to pathogens, we combine biochemistry and molecular biology with real-time optical measurements of airway cell signaling and associated physiological responses, including ciliary beating, calcium signaling, fluid secretion, ion transport, nitric oxide production, and antimicrobial peptide secretion. Our goal is to better understand the cellular and molecular bases of airway diseases to identify novel molecular targets for new therapies.

    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.
