Ajeet K Kaushik

Assistant Professor, Florida International University, USA

Ajeet Kumar Kaushik, PhD, is a faculty at the Centre of Personalized Nanomedicine, Department of Immunology of Florida International University (FIU), Miami, Florida, USA. He is exploring smart electro-active magnetic nanocarriers for on-demand site-specific delivery and controlled release of therapeutics across BBB to prevent HIV, a new approach to neuroAIDS. He has worked as a postdoctoral research associate in the area of fabrication of BioMEMS-based electrochemical biosensors for biomarker detection using nanostructures at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of FIU. He has also worked at Chungnam National University, Deajeon, Korea, as a Visiting Researcher and at Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland, as a research assistant. He has published over 70+ international research papers jointly in the area of nanostructured platforms for biosensor and drug delivery applications. His main research interest is the fabrication of nanomedicine and wearable sensors for personalized health care. Dr. Kaushik received his PhD (chemistry and biosensors) in collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory and Jamia Milia Islamia, New Delhi, India.
