QB Experience
“I joined the QB program with the intentions of learning how to apply quantitative skills acquired in my undergrad studies on biological problems with potential biomedical applications. The QB program has so far allowed me to connect, collaborate and share knowledge with people from different disciplines.”
Started QB in 2011
MRSEC Research in the Dogic Lab
“My research group is focused on understanding the self assembly of materials. This understanding is achieved by mimicking real life observations of self assembly (such as flocks of birds, schools of fish, and many more) using simple biological components as building blocks. My research is aimed at shining light on the behavior of active materials (obtained from the self assembly) under different geometrical confinements. This research combines useful techniques from biology, instrumentation, microscopy and physics through protein purification, microfluidics, imaging and data analysis.”
