Research Interests: Systems biology, probabilistic systems modeling, microbial electrophysiology, and microbiorobotics.Job Interests: Academic research and teaching positions in the areas of biological system theory and simulation.
I am a PhD student advised by Michel Maharbiz in the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at UC Berkeley. I work on developing methods to engineer and control microbial ensembles, which touches on system theory, microbial electrophysiology, and synthetic biology.
I received my B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Ohio State University in 2008, with emphasis on signal processing. My inquiries have led me to a diverse set of experiences including work with diaper production lines, anti-mortar radar, electromagnetic wave scattering, and cochlear implant speech processing before my present focus on biological work. In addition, I teach as I find it a critical and rewarding part of a knowledge-based career.
