Dr. Carl D. Saquing received his BS degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. He obtained his Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia through an Australian for International Development scholarship in 1998, studying the behavior of isomeric model drug molecules in supercritical CO2 and cosolvent systems. He went on to finish his PhD in Chemical Engineering at the University of Connecticut in 2004 working on incorporating nanostructures into nanoporous matrices as well as producing polymer/drug microspheres using supercritical fluids. Currently, he is a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering with Prof. Saad Khan and is involved with the synthesis and characterization of functional nanofibers (metal nanoparticle/nanofiber and drug/nanofiber composites, porous, inorganic, etc) using various electrospinning based methodologies with the end in view of applications to biomedicine, catalysis and sensing.
