About/Research Interests

I am currently a sophomore in Biological Engineering (Course 20), and enrolled in Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering (20.109). I am also a member of the MIT 2012 iGEM team. My research interests include systems and synthetic biology and regenerative medicine/tissue engineering. Overall, all of my interests relate to how engineering tools can be used to unravel the mysteries of disease, and propose different treatments.
