I am a fourth year MEng student in Bioengineering at Imperial College London. I am currently in an exchange programme at UC Berkeley, in California. My main focus this year is my Master's project, which I am undertaking with Professor Luke Lee, at UC Berkeley[1]. Besides my project, this semester, I am taking two classes - Robotics and Introduction to BioMEMS.
