I graduated from State University of New York at Buffalo with a computer engineering degree in 2003. During this time, I interned at Niagara Power Plant in Lewiston in 2002 doing server side programming and at Airsep Corporation in 2003 programming control systems for industrial oxygen concentrators. I joined University of Michigan in 2003 as a graduate student and received my masters degree in Electrical Engineering in 2005. I am currently working on developing microtechniques for patterned delivery of extracellular compounds into developing embryos and cells with Dr. Michel Maharbiz. I plan to receive my Ph.D in May 2009.
