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.”

I work with my clients to design and develop product features that enhance user experiences, increase product revenue, and remove operational inefficiencies associated with their product using Agile Software Delivery methods.

“(In BioE I learned how to) empathize and conduct user needs research to develop products that not only solve problems, but increase usability and customer satisfaction.”

It’s easy to get involved with Berkeley BioE

    Are you interested in what innovation as a Berkeley undergraduate student looks like? Join us for a conversation with five undergraduates who are deeply involved in maker, inventor, and design communities on campus. Learn about their experiences in building solar cars, robotics, autonomous vehicles, and software. And find out more about what you can do at Berkeley. Join the online event

  • Nanostructured Silicon as a Therapeutic and Diagnostic Tool

    October 22, 2021, 2–3 p.m.

    180 Tan Hall

    Distinguished Prof. Michael J. Sailor, UC San Diego, MRSEC / Chem / MSE

    This presentation describes the chemistry and properties of mesoporous silicon nanoparticles relevant to sensing and treating diseased tissues in vivo. Nanophase silicon is one of few semiconductor "quantum dot" materials that is non-toxic and that degrades to non-toxic byproducts. For in vivo applications, advantages include the tissue-penetrating near-infrared wavelength of emission, the...
