I am interested in studying drug delivery as a transport phenomenon. A fundamental understanding of transport processes in drug delivery will help us to design better drug carriers for a variety of applications. The unique densely-packed structure of the skin poses a formidable biological barrier for transdermal drug delivery. I am performing a mechanistic study of how macromolecules permeate through the skin with the aid of ionic liquids, which potentially changes the skin structure. My second research project is to systematically investigate how nanoparticle-hitchhiked red blood cells interact with the flow environment in microcirculation and explore the critical conditions for nanoparticles to detach and release drugs.
