Her research interests cover the fields of:
- peptide and oligonucleotide synthesis and pharmaceuticals downstream;
- membrane-based separation processes, molecular transport through membranes, modelling and scale-up of separation processes
- synthesis and characterisation of nano-scale functional materials for separation and delivery
Her current research at Imperial focuses on the development of new manufacturing technologies for high-value (bio)polymers and the optimisation of membrane processes for molecular separation.
Additionally, she is working on developing highly selective and robust polymeric nanofiltration membranes and on modelling transport and mass transfer limitations in membrane modules to support membrane scale-up.
