I researched in two complementary areas; drug delivery and immunology. Since I was awarded my previous doctorate in Pharmaceutical Sciences with Pharmaceutics as my major, I found that there was a critical need to apply these acquired skills to various biological (cellular and molecular), immunological and inflammatory processes. This drove me to continue an additional doctoral study in the field of Microbiology and Immunology so as to bridge the gap between formulation sciences and optimise interventions for inflammatory diseases particularly respiratory. I have a thorough knowledge and extensive experience in formulation development, microbiology, immunology and pharmaceutics with special emphasis on pulmonary and transdermal drug delivery systems. This knowledge and experience has eventuated from extensive undergraduate and post-graduate training in pharmaceutical and health science disciplines. I also have lecturing and curriculum development experience which covers 11 years across national and international Universities along with 2 years industrial experience. My career is dedicated to improving outcomes in healthcare through my initiatives in formulation and biomedical research.
