As an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Biological and Medical Engineering (IIBM), I study the interactions of human cells and their microbiome by developing ultra-high throughput droplet microfluidic methods for genetic, optical, metabolic, and cultivation screens. I have over 10 years of research experience in micro-fabrication, biophysics, prototyping, microbiome analysis, modelling, and optics / photonics. We design our methods appropriately for global impact by developing our tools as low-cost and high-performing open source hardware. I am passionate about bridging the gap between engineering and biology to advance quantitative biology and unlock new discoveries with real-world implications. I am an advocate and leader in the global Open Science Hardware movement.
