What I do

My research focuses on the drug formulation aspects of hyperpolarized carbon-13 for magnetic resonance imaging. In addition to sterile drug development research, I am particularly interested in the regulatory climate that impacts both pharmacy compounding and industrial manufacturing. Collaborating with internal and external partners committed to creating cutting-edge advances in pharmaceutical science education also plays an important role in my academic position.
