(2010-08-31)The aim of my Ph. D. thesis is to generalize a method for targeted anti-cancer drug delivery. Hydrophilic polymer-drug conjugates involve complicated synthesis; drug-encapsulated polymeric nanoparticles limit the loading ...
(2010-01-06)This thesis studies methods of engineering the placement of nanoparticle with sub-micron resolution over macroscopic size scales. Such control holds great promise as an inexpensive methodology for manufacturing devices, ...
(2012-09-18)The goal of my Ph. D. research is to develop a precisely size-controlled drug conjugated silica nanoparticles as a new type of drug delivery system for improved cancer therapy. By using such monodisperse, drug-containing ...
(2012-06-27)Nanostructures typically exhibit thermo-physical properties that are different from their bulk counterparts. The size dependence of thermo physical properties is attributed to changing energy and mass transport phenomenon ...
(2010-08-20)In this dissertation I present my research on the effective interactions of colloidal particles induced by a smaller species, as well as the structure of colloidal particles undergoing freeze casting. In this research ...
