Personal profile

Research interests

With an BSc and MSc in Microbiology and Cellular-Molecular Biology Science and PhD in Biomedical Science, I am broadly interested in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine with particular emphasis on bioengineeting and additive manufacturing. My general research agenda is in developing ‘personalized’ solutions that utilize the bioscaffolds and micro- and nanoscale technologies to enable a range of therapies for tissue and organ failure. The interdisciplinary research as a postdoctoral fellow is to investigate ways to construction of efficient 3-D bioscaffold by electrospinning for therapeutic use of age-related macular degeneration, retinal cell production from stem cells, hematopoietic and mesenchymal cell development through tissue culture, analysis of cell development through gene and protein expression, development of scaffolds to support cell growth, as well as functional analysis of stem cell differentiation and growth in vitro and in vivo. The project is funded by the Clem Jones Centre for Regenerative Medicine. In my PhD thesis, my research focused on 3-D printing scaffold by melt electrowriting (MEW) for bone tissue regeneration. I developed a novel designed scaffold structure mimicking the natural extracellular matrix (ECM) of the bone tissues with bi-model offset and gradient porous architectures and evaluation of calcium phosphate stability during new bone formation. During my master’s degree, I fabricated 3-D aligned and random electrospun polycaprolactone (PCL) nanofibrous scaffolds as an artificial ECM in combination with embryonic stem cells and embryoid bodies that were utilized to reconstruct a spinal cord defect.

I was awarded second place for the best publication in the health group of GU-2019 by faculty vote. I was awarded as the GU nominee for the IADR-ANZ Colgate poster competition (senior category) in Perth- 2018, Colgate travel award, Australian Dental Research Foundation (ADRF) Grant in 2018, Dentistry and Oral Health (DOH) research grants from GU in 2017 and 2018 and both University of Queensland International Scholarship (UQI) and the Griffith University International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (GUIPRS) to support for my Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) candidature in 2015. I am on the editorial boards and reviewer of different journals including Materials & Design Journal, International Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Life and the Journal of Science: Advanced Materials and Devices.

Statement for HDR students

I am highly interested in training PhD and master students in the area of biomaterials, tissue engineering and stem cell biology.
