Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

I have held two UROPs, one as a freshmen in the RLE QNN lab's Berggren group working on development of a low-noise, high-precision current source. I currently hold a UROP in the CBE with the Grodzinsky/Ortiz groups exploring the nanomechanics of murine cartilage in response to gene knockouts. I have also held a position with the National Resource for Imaging Mass Spectroscopy for the past year developing a negative-source mass spectroscopy device.

Anything else you would like us to know?
