Engineering solutions for current, pressing clinical needs

 

In Vivo Veritas

A blog about science, technology, research and policy

I’m passionate about engineering technologies to address pressing clinical needs.

I am a native of Boston, MA and currently a graduate student working toward my PhD in Medical Engineering and Medical Physics through the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences & Technology program. I graduated from Georgia Tech with my Bachelor’s of Science degree in biomedical engineering.  My interests in the biosciences and engineering were catalyzed by Professor Shinya Yamanaka’s seminal work on reprogramming human skin cells to pluripotent stem cells. I’m passionate about research and entrepreneurship to engineer and translate biomedical technologies from the bench-top to the bedside. Outside of the lab, I enjoy sailing, photography, biking, camping, hiking, swimming and traveling the world.
