I have worked in the MIT Center for Biomedical Engineering for 2 years under Dr. Shuguang Zhang. I am part of the RealNose team, so I work synthesizing olfactory proteins to be used in creating a synthetic nose that can detect odorants in concentrations equivalent to dogs.
I spent the summer at UCLA Medical School under Dr. Otto Yang researching HIV-1 mutational escape from cytotoxic T lymphocytes in acute infection.
Anything else you would like us to know?
