Research interests

Research Scientist in the Menon Lab at UTMB Galveston. My interest in research began as an undergraduate student in Pharmaceutical sciences when I spent my time in the pharmacology lab to record the smooth muscle contractions. However, it was not until I started my master’s in pharmacologythat the desire to understand the basic mechanisms of drug actions and different phases of drug development. My passion drives me towards to Pharmacy to establish pharmacokinetic parameters of ayurvedic formulations of the Indiansystem of medicine. Later I have got an opportunity to with Traditional Chinese medicine at Hong Kong BaptistUniversity. I have worked in Immunology to understand the mechanism of mast cells responses in Anaphylaxis and Allergic asthma at Michigan state university. Menon provided me with an amazing opportunity to establish the pharmacokinetic parameters for the exosomes which is a novel drug delivery system to treat preterm birth delivery. This research will allow for a better understanding of novel drug therapeutics which crosses the blood-brain barrier or blood placenta barrier and provide the foundation for the development of novel therapies for preterm birth.
