Do you have any experience culturing cells (mammalian, yeast or microbial)?
Yes, I've cultured mammalian cells before.

Do you have any experience in molecular biology (electrophoresis, PCR, etc)?
I don't have any experience in molecular biology!

Please briefly describe any previous laboratory experience

I've worked in a pharmaceutical lab during my junior and senior year of high school, and after coming to MIT I've been working at the Khademhosseini Lab doing research and using thermo-responsive polymers for tissue engineering.

Anything else you would like us to know?

Can't think of anything at the moment!


  • 2013, BS, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Research interests

  1. Tissue Engineering, especially with relation to cardiac research. I've worked on vascular tissue engineering in the past.
  2. Biomedical research for the development of prosthetic heart valves and TAVIs.
