    Research Interest: Field of the solid-state investigation of the molecular self-assembly of different solid forms of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) (polymorphs, cocrystals, salts and hydrates) with the support of quantum chemical calculations in the presence and absence of single crystal data. A rather important interest is the online monitoring of the transformation of these solid forms using either in situ Raman and NIR spectroscopy or a combination of in situ Raman spectroscopy and other relevant techniques (e.g. DSC and DVS) to provide a complete picture of physical and chemical changes that are occurring during the pharmaceutical processes.
