With my bachelor's in biotechnology, I have worked in the field of nanotechnology and formulated peptide-targeted drug delivery systems for cancer cells. This involved the making of nanoparticles like gold nanoparticles, solid-lipid nanoparticles, and nanobubbles loaded with therapeutic and cell-penetrating peptides for precision and efficiency of the formulated drug delivery system for cancer theranostics. 

One of the things that intrigues me the behavioural changes of cells due to certain stimulus like drugs , gene expression and much more. My aim is to decipher these cellular responses in a way that’s relatable and understandable, ultimately refining disease models for more accurate insights into human health.
