[graduate student (UCSD BISB)] [email]
I received my BSc and MSc in Bioengineering from UPenn in Philly, where I sailed and studied how the cell experiences the sense of touch. I then worked at Ginkgo Bioworks, in Boston, and at BRAIN A.G. in Zwingenberg, Germany, realizing that the microbe is the most beautiful machine. I hope to understand that machine not just as a tinkerer but as a true engineer--one who uses quantitative laws and evidence to design and build. Towards that goal, I am investigating the bacterial cell cycle, and how a single cell can harmonize chromosome replication, growth, division, and size.
