Background

I am a Junior studying Biomedical Engineering. I have worked with using synthetic biology to make genetic edits to hematopoietic stem cell lines, and now work in Dr. Weiss' lab helping to construct imaging equipment to measure biomaterials under strain.

Current Responsibilities

Assist with equipment construction including use of Solidworks and LabView software to program equipment.

Research Interests

I am interested in any sort of research that has the potential to make people's lives easier. In particular I find any work dealing with regenerative medicine or tissue engineering to be fascinating.
