Research Interests

Dental pulp stem cells, Mineralised Tissue repair, Regenerative endodontics, 3D culture systems for dental infections, Nanovesicle drug delivery, 3D culture systems for bone repair and physiology

As a bioengineer interested in mineralised tissues and dental tissue repair, appropriate models are required. Having developed 3D organotypic culture systems for dental tissues I am interested in developing more reproducible systems to investigate dental pulp repair, modulation of dental (and bone) infection and characterisation of MSCs in 3D in vitro systems
