Summary: Recently graduated with master’s in Nanoengineering and looking for biopharma or medical device development opportunities in the Bay Area.

Research Experience

Research Assistant Professor Nathan Gianneschi’s Biochemistry Lab University of California, San Diego September 2015 – June 2016; September 2016 – June 2017 Project: Fabricating liquid cell TEM chips using clean room microfabrication techniques to investigate the microtubule- Taxol interaction

• Fabricated patterned liquid cell TEM chips using PECVD, photolithography, reactive ion etching, and wet etching

• Helped set up the automated sciTEM sample deposition process

• Synthesized microtubules for experimentation

Project: Heat sensitive optical sensors using DNA-gold nanoparticle conjugates.

• Functionalized gold nanoparticles with DNA

• Performed thermal UV-vis spectroscopy to characterize the heat sensitive absorbance

• Prepared samples for dry state and liquid cell TEM Research Intern Professor Raymond Schiffelers Nanomedicine Lab University Medical Center, Utrecht, Netherlands June 2016 – August 2016 Project: Developing a sensitive biosensor for noninvasive cancer diagnosis using extracellular vesicles

• Synthesized mimicked extracellular vesicles to test biosensor

• Engineered a gold nanoparticle conjugated with streptavidin

• Started two cell lines (EGFR positive and negative), performed cell cultures and extrusions

• Demonstrated selectivity of the biosensor with respect to EGFR Education
