Research Interests

  • During my early graduate studies, I became interested in using nanomedicine to overcome problems in cancer treatment. I started working to synthesize and characterize a variety of nanoparticle platforms for use in cancer monitoring and therapy. Now I am studying novel treatments for drug resistant lung cancers and how to minimize potential treatment associated cardiotoxicity. I am hoping to use my knowledge of nanomedicine to help improve the efficacy and safety of any potential therapy.
