I currently work in the Lauffenburger lab at MIT with Dr. Shannon Alford designing an ELISA assay for Mena, a protein upregulated in invasive breast cancer cells. Previously, I studied how the variation in ECM proteins affects the migration and adhesion of invasive breast cancer cells.

During the summer of 2011, I was an Amgen Scholar at Stanford University, and did research in the Smolke lab with Isis Trenchard, working to engineer S. cerevisiae for the production of bisbenzylisoquinoline alkaloids.

I have also worked on developing a drug-eluting contact lens with Dr. Joe Ciolino in the Langer lab at MIT during January-August 2010.
