Summary

My research interest is primarily focused in the field of inhalation protein and peptide drug delivery. I am currently investigating ways to improve absorption of drugs by non-invasive routes in laboratory animals. I am also exploring and understanding the mechanisms of peptide and protein drug transport in vitro in cell culture models. Also, I remain actively involved in implementing novel methods of teaching and assessment in the classroom.
