My role is to provide an interface between the different realms that need to be crossed to take our device to market, namely the biochemistry and the microfluidics.

“Berkeley Bioengineering enabled me, through hands-on research experience and by being able to take classes across different departments, to create a balanced profile, something critical for being constructive in a small start-up.”

I perform process development to design, establish, and transfer cell therapy processes to support early phase clinical trials.

“The course and laboratory work at Berkeley helped me not only to grasp the principles but also allowed me to apply those in real life applications. I believe that the culture in Berkeley to encourage analytical thinking was crucial to my success both as student and in the industry.”

    The transformative growth in microelectronics in the latter half of the 20th century was fueled fundamentally by the ability to simultaneously miniaturize and integrate complex circuits onto monolithic chips. The impact of this growth has been profound– computing is pervasive and portable, communication is instant and global, and information is ubiquitously gathered and shared. My research aims...
