I am a PhD student in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory. My research focuses on developing contrast agents and techniques for detecting stem cell viability and differentiation using ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging. Though I’m currently working on stem cell tracking, my research is relevant to a variety of applications and covers a range of interests, including responsive nanomaterials that act as sensors.
For my undergraduate career, I attended the University of Chicago and majored in Biological Sciences. After graduating in 2012, I pursued a Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering at Duke University. I graduated from Duke in 2013 and continued on to the University of Texas at Austin for my PhD studies. After my first year of school at UT Austin, I moved to Atlanta with our group to continue my studies at Georgia Tech. Outside of the lab, I enjoy playing musical instruments, competing in triathlons, hiking, fly fishing, and watching movies. Since I’m originally from Pittsburgh, I also love cheering on my hometown’s hockey team…let’s go Pens!
