Biography
I am a graduate student pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Delaware. I completed my undergraduate Bachelor's degree at the Institute of Chemical Technology, India in Polymer Engineering and Technology. My PhD research project involves building new peptides and biomolecules that come together and form new and intricate nanostructures in water, which can be used to build nano-machines that encapsulate and deliver drugs in the body and also catalyze nano-scale inorganic reactions. I use state-of-the-art characterization techniques such as Electron Microscopes, Neutron Scattering and Ultracentrifugation to study the behavior of these peptides and their nanostructure in solution.
