My scientific interest lies in stem cells, tissue engineering, and biomaterials. 

As a tissue engineer with over eight years of experience in stem cell engineering, I assess how stem cell cultures grow, change, and respond to synthetic environments. My Ph.D. research focused on how these environments affect stem cell behavior, and I am currently developing new types of neural cells.

I have expertise in a wide range of techniques, including human stem cell biology, creating assays (flow cytometry, microscopy, etc.), isolating and growing cells, molecular biology, biomaterials, and using software for experimental design and data analysis.

At GC Therapeutics, I earned a promotion from Scientist I to Scientist II due to my contributions to the team. I designed and implemented workflows and assays to test potential stem cell therapies, increased stem cell production by 7.8x, developed three new assays, and collaborated with three program teams and external institutions. My research directly contributed to the company securing Series A funding.

I completed postdoctoral research at Northeastern University, where I set up a lab and trained to assess a new treatment for visual degeneration in an animal model. I also gained industry experience at STERIS Endoscopy, where I partnered with an external organization to create a synthetic model of the colon.

I hold a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from The University of Akron, an M.Sc. in Human & Applied Physiology from King's College London, and a B.Eng. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Mumbai. I received scholarships and awards during graduate school for my research and leadership.

I'm always looking to grow my personal and professional network. Feel free to connect via LinkedIn.

Thank you for your interest in my work!
