Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

  • Summer fellowship at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center: I seeded and differentiated iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes in 3D collagen based hydrogels
  • UROP in the Khademhosseini Lab: I worked with embryonic stem cells in hybrid hydrogel environments.
  • Summer REU at the Rowland Institute: I designed and fabricated microfluidic devices for time-resolved, high-throughput cell imaging.
  • UROP in the MIT-Novartis Center for Continuous Manufacturing: I had various projects including studying different heterogeneous nucleation systems and developing a method for crystallization of spherical particles.

Please briefly describe any previous technical communication experience you have

    • Written Communication: This year I helped to write a review article for my UROP and in previous summer research experiences I have had to write full reports on my projects.
    • Oral Communication: I have given powerpoint presentations on my research projects for my summer research projects.
