Preferred "Extra" OH Time
We will take a doodle poll to set regular office hours based upon T/R or W/F section. However, we do offer supplemental office hours before big assignments are due.
What times on Sundays (all), Mondays (T/R section), and Tuesdays (W/F section) are you available for occasional office hours? We have held office hours in the evening in the past, but day time slots are best.
Sundays between 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Tuesdays after 4:00 PM.

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience
Langer Lab: Microfluidic Device to Isolate and Tag Circulating Tumor Cells Utilizing microfluidic delivery device to isolate circulating tumor cells in dilutions of up to 1:106 blood cells, allowing study of metastasis, the primary cause of cancer-related death Designing, conducting, and analyzing experiments for isolation by surface markers, size, and gene expression
Wirtz Lab: Image Processing and Analysis of Cancer Cell Response to Insulin Developed image processing software in MATLAB, allowing us to quantify insulin response in over 400 cells in about 80s; software led to discovery of novel subcellular trends in diabetes and cancer Analyzed Akt phosphorylation from insulin stimulus at single cell resolution, level of detail previously unreached
DNA Medicine Institute (Biotechnology Company): Construction of a Handheld Blood Diagnostic Device Constructed optics and microfluidics systems for the rHEALTH sensor—a handheld, reusable flow cytometer that measures blood cell and protein levels, allowing for critical diagnostic tests from one blood drop Utilized LabVIEW Program to collect and analyze physiological signals, test device, and improve the production-stage prototype of the rHEALTH sensor
