Research Interests:

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) as new chemical platform for controlled delivery of medicinal drugs. Chemical mechanisms of adsorption/encapsulation, controlled drug release, and surface reactions of MOFs with bio-organic molecules including anti-cancer and anti-viral medicinal drugs. Environmental applications of MOFs and associated chemical mechanisms. Development of new Operando and in-situ nondestructive instrumental methods of analysis in heterogeneous media such as suspensions, colloidal solutions and biological tissues.
