RECENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
Systems Biomedicine & Pharmaceutics
We are interested in interdisciplinary research at the intersection of chemical engineering, computational science and engineering, applied mathematics, biomedical science, and pharmaceutical science. Many applications with great societal impact lie within the intersection of these disciplines, such as advanced pharmaceuticals and medical technologies. The central aim of our research program is to develop and utilize innovative process systems engineering approaches to solve clinically-relevant, multiscale problems in medicine and pharmaceutics. Our research combines expertise in process systems engineering with a holistic view of the delivery, distribution, and physiological fate of advanced pharmaceutical drug dosage forms administered to human patients in order to improve human health and engineer better medicines. Additionally, we are interested in problems of transport in heterogeneous materials, which has applications in many fields ranging from tissue engineering to petroleum exploration.
