Department: Chemical Engineering
Advisor: Shashi Murthi
I started working in Dr. Murthy’s lab in April of 2007, right after freshman year. At the time, I was interested in learning about Chemical engineering’s applications to biology and medicine. My first project was an attempt to isolate skin stem cells, using a micro-fluidic chamber. As I continued working in the lab, my interests developed, and so did my research accordingly. I became more interested in molecular biology and nanomedicine, as you will see in my current project.
I grew up in Brookline, MA, 3.4 miles west of Northeastern. I went to Maimonides High School. I spent most of my time in school, as I was in a ton of clubs. I was on the Mock Trial team, Student Council President, class treasurer, to name a few. I spent my summers working at the Wagner Law Group, in Boston, MA, as a legal assistant. Currently, I am a member of AICHE, Hillel, and do some informal tutoring. My favorite past time is chilling in the lab, of course. In the future, I plan to pursue some form of a graduate degree, but I am not sure what yet.
