My research interests subtend the field of synthetic and systems biology, control theory, automation, and genomics. I am interested in the design of algorithms for controlled evolution along with the optimization and automation of biological phenomena. I am also interested in the application of systems engineering techniques like machine learning and neural models to non-linear systems of all kinds.
9/2011 - Present Graduate Synthetic Biology Researcher at Cross-Disciplinary Integration of Design Automation Research, Boston University
I defined a mathematical formalism used to describe biological operations to be performed on a genome. These operations were then used to create algorithms for optimal genome transformation.
9/2010 - 9/2011 Biosensing Researcher at Optical Characterization and Nanophotonics Laboratory, Boston University
I designed and built biosensors through cleanroom fabrication techniques. I Optimized the Design of Novel Biosensor Technology through MALDI-TOF and SRB. I Fabricated MEMS Silicon Cantilevers for Spectral Sciences Incorporated. I used the Photolithography, Mask Writing, Wet Etching, Reactive Ion Etching, Plasma Ashing, and other Clean Room Technology in the fabrication.
5/2011 - 8/2011 Optics Researcher at Photonics Center, Boston University
I designed and coded a Stochastic Parallel Gradient Algorithm for the operation of a micro-scale system of deformable mirrors. This algorithm was used to direct and assemble light through opaque mediums.
5/2010 - 12/2010 Neuroengineering Researcher at Hewlett-Packard/Neuromorphics Laboratory, Boston University
I scripted neural image capture and movement codes for iRobot Create Roomba. I scripted saliency maps for Animats via novel "CogEx" Machina Architecture. I assisted in the preparation of special topics course for PhD students in Adaptive Robotics.
