Research Fellow


I joined the Chiappini Lab in June 2020 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate, my work is to develop new approaches to design nanomaterials for topical delivery of biologicals.

I did my PhD in Northumbria University (UK) worked on developing elastic instabilities induced super-flexible sensors and advanced 3D morphing transducers. I am particularly focused on developing the control mechanisms of elastic instabilities and manufacturing the micro and nano soft devices, to exploit their applications in sensing and actuation systems. My PhD is in collaboration with Scottish Microelectronics Centre, University of Edinburgh, Newcastle Bio-imaging centre, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, etc. I have published seven first-authored articles of which my work has been featured by media presses in EPSRC, IoM3,Materials Word,, NECONNECTED and won an outstanding student paper award at the international flexible electronics technology conference.
