I am a fourth year MEng student in Bioengineering at Imperial College London. I am currently in an exchange programme at UC Berkeley, in California. My main focus this year is my Master's project, which I am undertaking with Professor Luke Lee, at UC Berkeley[http://biopoets.berkeley.edu/people.php]. Besides my project, this semester, I am taking two classes - Robotics and Introduction to BioMEMS.
 
 
=== Interests ===
 
 
* '''MEMS''' (Microelectromechanical systems) for Lab-on-a-Chip devices and biomedical sensors.
 
* '''Vesicles''' and the encapsulation of DNA and gene expression machinery inside phospholipid vesicles.
 
** Association colloid science
 
** Experiment design and wetlab work
 
** Observation and imaging
 
** Chassis characterisation
 
* '''Biological modelling''' with nonlinear dynamics
