MIT Research Affiliate, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

I am passionate about using my technical skills to make a difference in healthcare globally. I attended Caltech (B.S.) and MIT (Ph.D.) and worked abroad in the UK and in India. Currently, I work with Prof. Robert Langer (MIT) and Prof. Giovanni Traverso (MIT and Harvard) on novel drug delivery devices to help patients take their medication. As part of this, I have led a team of 50 people across multiple continents to invent and begin translation of these new technologies.
