My research area is primarily focused on formulation design and development of topical and transdermal dosage forms. Current research projects include the development of transdermal and nanoparticle dosage forms for treating infections and inflammatory disorders. My research is also focused on solubility improvement of insoluble drugs, solid state characterization of drugs and nanoparticles.

My experience also includes work on the formulation development of solid dosage forms (tablets, rapid dissolve strips), liquid oral (solution and suspension) and sterile injection (solution) dosage forms.
