Research interests:

My main research interests lie in the field of electroporation, including finite element numerical modeling of electric field distribution in different biological tissue setups (subcutaneous tumors, skin fold) and cell systems (multicellular spheroids) and comparison of the theoretical results with the experimental work. In the last couple of years, my research work is specifically oriented on understanding and describing the process of skin electropermeabilization, mostly involving numerical modeling as well as in vivo experimenting.

  • Innovative Therapeutics: from molecules to drugs, Department of Pharmacy - King’s College London, London, United Kingdom, June 23 – July 3 2003
  • Electroporation based Technologies and Treatments, International scientific workshop and postgraduate course, Ljubljana, Slovenia, November 19-22, 2003 (UL-FE)
