Kavan is a PhD student at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Adelaide, Adelaide, SA, Australia. His main research interest lies in combining experimental and numerical techniques to gain insights into biomedical engineering and advanced drug delivery approaches.

Kavan believes that by targeting specific sites and tissues/organs with nano-medicines, a highly efficient nano-drug delivery system can be developed for effective diagnosis and treatment of various diseases, including cancer. Given his strong focus on drug delivery, Kavan has undertaken numerous investigations into nanoparticle-based drug delivery mechanisms, such as magnetic drug targeting, which have resulted in several publications.

Kavan's research experience encompasses various computational fluid dynamics (CFD) studies across different fields. It began with his undergraduate project, which investigated the biothermal effects of various ambient conditions on human eye tissue through an experimental setup and simultaneous numerical simulation.

In his previous studies, he investigated the effects of various parameters on drug delivery, including non-Newtonian blood flow, pulsatile blood flow, nanoparticle diameter, RBC-particle interaction, magnet types and configurations, and vessel wall shear stress. He has also contributed to research studies in the fields of Energy, Exergy, Environment and optimization technology.

Kavan believes that pursuing a Ph.D. in this field will allow him to expand his professional skills as well as enhance his academic knowledge. He envisions a complete package from nanomedicine development to their delivery to the specified region, ultimately contributing to the prevention of chronic diseases.
