Summary: PhD Candidate, Dept of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology
My passion for chemical engineering has led me to the interdisciplinary field of drug delivery and nano-based medicines. While completing a B.S. in Chemical-Biological Engineering at MIT, I had the incredible opportunity to research a variety of chemical engineering applications, including enzyme engineering, biomaterials, and nanotherapeutics. These experiences, and my internships in industry, have given me a holistic view of the field and sparked my curiosity to address it further. At Cambridge, for my PhD Chemical Engineering, I am pursuing a project that combines novel technologies in engineering, biotech, materials science, and biopharmaceuticals, to address the existent global problem of treating debilitating diseases with a more effective drug delivery using Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs). I am confident that the relationships, knowledge, and technical skillset I gain at Cambridge, through the opportunity from the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, will drive my future career aspiration to be a biotechnology leader.
