My research focuses on the development of novel carbohydrate-based hydrogels for controlled delivery. I am currently developing an injectable and bioresorbable gel that can release therapeutic enzymes for the treatment of spinal cord injuries. My work builds upon my experience as a polymer chemist and expands my knowledge of biological issues to explore new potential therapies for difficult to treat health issues.
