Background and activities
Currently, I’m pursuing my doctoral thesis at the department of Materials Science and Engineering at NTNU in the group: ‘Functional materials and Materials Chemistry’. My research topic is ‘Hybrid Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications’, that includes synthesis, functionalization, characterization of magneto-plasmonic hybrid nanoparticles (NPs) and their potential applications in the medical industry. Different characterization techniques, such as HRTEM, UV-Vis Spectroscopy, DLS, XRD, EDX, EELS, to name a few, will be conducted to analyse different nanosystems.
I graduated from NTNU in 2016, with a master’s degree in Chemical Engineering with specialization in Colloid and Polymer Chemistry. I wrote my master’s thesis on the topic; ‘Different shaped hybrid nanocarriers for theranostic applications’ at the Ugelstad Laboratory. The study involved investigating the effect of shape and size of gold NPs on encapsulation efficiencies and release of drug from various inorganic-polymer based hybrid nanogel systems for targeted drug delivery applications.
