BME - Georgia Tech/Emory
I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech, with a minor in Materials Science and Engineering. During my undergrad, I worked in an ocular biomechanics lab studying microgravity-induced optic nerve sheath remodeling from a cellular perspective. I also investigated the effects of amyloid beta and mechanical stretch on astrocyte activation. For my Ph.D., my primary research interest is in engineering exosome-like vesicles to deliver customized cargo for cardiac tissue regeneration and repair. Aside from this, I also worked on designing injectable hydrogels to activate Notch signaling in cardiac progenitor cells.
