I received my BS in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Johns Hopkins University where I worked in multiple areas including materials engineering and planetary science. In the summer of 2019 I interned at the Interuniversity Microelectronics Center (imec) in Leuven, Belgium where I developed an interest in BioMEMS/lab-on-a-chip technologies. After graduating in 2020, I spent two years working in R&D at Terray Therapeutics, a Los Angeles based start-up, to improve a novel microfluidic and microbead-based high-throughput drug discovery platform. I am now pivoting into neural engineering, using my background in surface chemistry and microfluidics, to work at the microdevice-neural tissue interface.
