Postdoctoral Research Fellow

University of Central Florida
(3 months)Nanoscience Technology Center, 12424 research parkway, orlando, florida 32826
Continuation of the project from Ph.D., while Mentoring the graduate and undergraduate students in the lab.

Research Assistant

University of Central Florida
(6 years 5 months)Nanoscience Technology center, 12424 research parkway, Orlando, FL 32826
As a graduate research assistant while working towards my dissertation, I setup the cell-culture facility in the lab and cultured a variety of cell lines. The project included fabrication of polymer nanoparticles, characterization of the nanoparticles, study the uptake of nanoparticles in different cell lines and perform photodynamic therapy experiments on these cell lines treated with the nanoparticles. This included confocal fluorescence microscopy, intracellular spectroscopy, cell viability assays etc.
(Open)3 honors and awards

Ph.D. candidate

University of Central Florida
(6 years 5 months)Nanoscience technology center, 12424 research parkway, orlando, florida 32826
Fabrication of composite conducting nanoparticles for targeted photodynamic therapy. Single molecule and single particle spectroscopy. Intracellular spectroscopy. Mentoring undergraduate student in lab.


In the six years of my work towards dissertation I single-handedly managed to setup the cell-culture facility and had hands on experience in confocal fluorescence microscopy, cell viability assays, Atomic force microscopy, Transmission electron microscopy, Single particle spectroscopy.
• Fabrication and characterization of conducting polymer/fullerene nanoparticles by Dynamic light scattering (DLS), Atomic force microscopy (AFM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), zeta potential, single particle spectroscopy (SPS).
• Cell culture: Cultured various cell lines such as OVCAR3, A549, MDA-MB-231, MCF7, MIA-PaCa2 and TE-71
• Cell viability assays: Hands on experience in MTT and MTS cell viability assays
• Confocal fluorescence microscopy: Built 3D images of single cells.
• Single particle/molecule spectroscopy and Intracellular spectroscopy: Hands on experience in characterization of conducting polymer at molecular level and conducting polymer nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanotubes at single particle level using an optical setup with Ar ion laser, diode lasers, Avalache photodiode (APD) for collecting fluorescence images and a CCD camera coupled with a spectrophotometer for acquiring single molecule/particle spectra.
• Lifetime imaging (FLIM): Measured fluorescence lifetime in chitosan nanoparticles and nanoparticle-treated plant samples using PicoQuant-Symphotime and 375 nm pulsed diode laser.
