      I focus on multi-scale understanding of the mechanisms and governing principles of how multiphasic colloidal structure (e.g. food and other biomaterials) interacts with human physiology, in particular oral cavity. We design new delivery systems, such as emulsions, heteroprotein complexes/ coacervates, complex gels, microgels, particles by applying microstructural design approaches. To understand the interactions of those delivery systems with oral mucosa at various length scales (nano-to-human scale), our experimental approaches span from use of imaging (confocal laser scanning microscopy, atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy), scattering (light, X-ray), electrophoresis, mechanical measurements (rheology and soft tribology), layer-by-layer approaches, with extension to ex vivo and human trials.
