Karthick Sivalingam Anbazhagan
I was born in Erode and grew up in the coastal city of Chennai (India) where I earned my Bachelors in Chemical Engineering at IIT-Madras. I completed my M.S.E in Nanotechnology from University of Pennsylvania, under the guidance of Prof. Dennis Discher. My thesis project involved studies on cancer cell differentiation using slow release of retinoid drug delivery from filomicelle nanoparticles and bioderived hydrogels. I developed a deep interest in solving biomedical engineering problems and currently pursue my doctoral research in Bioengineering at Georgia Tech, where I hope to distinguish myself.
