"Those who control materials control technology" ----- Eiji Kobayashi, Panasonic

"Biology is the nanotechnology that works" ----- Tom Knight, MIT

Any trained chemical engineer will probably appreciate how apt these lines are! Now, I, being such a person, am broadly interested in applying the principles of nanoscience and material chemistry to discover the areas that somehow comes under the purview of  healthcare technology
. Specifically, I am interested in (and previously explored to some extent) the following areas:
  • Synthesis and Characterization of nanomaterials
  • Directed self-assembly of nanoparticles
  • Multifunctional nanomaterials for bio-imaging 
  • Targeted drug delivery via functional nanosystems
  • Fluorescent Spectroscopy 
  • Three dimensional photonic crystal
  • Advanced nanobiomaterial based solar energy conversion
  • Molecular Photoswitches
  • Colloidal interaction at soft-interfaces
