On this website, you will learn about my professional and recreational activities. Currently, I am a PhD candidate in biomedical engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. After expected graduation in 2016, I would like to join a naniobiotech company with a focus on nanosensors for molecular sensing and nanocharacterization of biological species. Applications such as developing next-generation DNA sequencing, sensing protein structure and folding, characterization of virus morphology, and molecular sensing for diagnosis have been the main topics in my work within the past 8 years. I have worked with several research groups in both engineering and biology laboratories to design nanosystems for these applications. Throughout these years in research, I have gained hands-on skills in various laboratory techniques covering biology, chemistry and materials science with extensive experience in bottom-up and top-down fabrication of nanomaterials, characterization of nanomaterials and cellular-molecular biology. As an engineer I have lots of experience in theoretical modeling, signal/image processing, and programming. You can find more about my research and experience throughout this website.
