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[1]. Besides my project, this semester, I am taking two classes - Robotics and Introduction to BioMEMS.


  • 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
