Steve Hira PayneLab 2011.JPG
Saheli Sarkar
Saheli earned her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University and her M.S. from Drexel University. While at Case Western, Saheli worked in the group of Prof. Harihara Baskaran on the migration of cancer and stromal cells in microfabricated platforms. At Georgia Tech, Saheli is doing a joint post-doc with the Payne and Kemp labs, and will be studying the intracellular transport of proteins necessary for redox signaling.
Steven Hira
Steve earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Florida State University. During his Ph.D., Steve worked under Prof. Geoffrey F. Strouse on imaging biomaterials for cellular delivery and developing biosensing devices. Currently, he is working on the intracellular synthesis of conducting polymer nanowires.

Umesh Kumar
Umesh earned his Ph.D in Biotechnology from National Chemical Laboratory (NCL), affiliated with Pune University, India, under the supervision of Dr. Archana Pundle. Umesh has worked on the biological synthesis of metal/metal oxide nanoparticles and the measurement of their physical and biophysical properties. Currently he is studying the interaction of nanoparticles with cells.

Debjyoti Bandyopadhyay
Debjyoti earned his Ph.D in Chemistry from Syracuse University, under the supervision of Prof. Yan-Yeung Luk. Debjyoti has worked on the fabrication of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of chiral polyol-terminated alkanethiols on gold. He discovered that the stereochemistry of the polyol moiety of these SAMs had a profound influence on the ability of these SAMs to resist the adsorption of proteins, mammalian cell adhesion and biofilm formation. Currently in the Payne lab he is working on the bioconjugation of thiophene monomers for intracellular delivery and analysis of lysosomal transport within cells.
