Past research experience includes working as a development scientist in R&D for Vertellus Specialties. As a lead scientist and in collaboration with University College London, I was responsible for the development of a hydrogel glaucoma implant and coating hemodialysers with a biocompatible coating. Completed projects on the Meng Dental Materials course, included studies on denture hydrogel fixatives and composite coatings for improved wear resistance.
Currently, my PhD research project involves studying layered double hydroxides for the incorporation into dental materials, to render the materials as rechargeable fluoride batteries. Having a controlled fluoride release of fluoride within the oral environment thus maintaining a low concentration, has a potential therapeutic effect in preventing caries.
