Project Title 

Current project 

October 2017 - Present, Development of engineered liposomes for targeted thrombolytic therapyfunded by NIHR BRC.

Previous projects 

April 2017 - September 2017, Thermo-electro-mechanical optimisation of an electric motor, funded by Innovate UK.

April 2013 - February 2017, Modelling of reverse osmosis membrane process and transport phenomena for performance analysis and optimisation, funded by BP-ICAM. PhD thesis supervised by Prof Xiao Yun Xu and Prof Claire Adjiman in Department of Chemical Engineering, Imperial College London, UK

Research Interests 

My research interests lie in the field of multiscale modelling and simulation of physical phenomena present in chemical, biological and environmental processes and model-based optimisation. I plan to broaden the scope of my research by integrating a molecular understanding of material properties and transport mechanisms into macroscale models.
