Dr Sarika Namjoshi completed her PhD from Curtin University in the area of topical formulation development and skin drug delivery. She has extensive experience in the area of topical and transdermal delivery both in academia and industry. Her current research focuses on developing a framework for characterizing semisolid topical dosage forms by identifying and measuring quality attributes that are critical for performance of topical products thereby mitigating the risk of failure modes in the final product.
