I’m a postdoc and University of Chicago and a PhD graduate from Ohio State University with a specialty in self-assembled biomaterials. My dissertation project focused on developing DNA-based machine elements and actuation methods. My postdoctoral work explores polyelectrolyte complexation of biomaterials.
