I am currently a PhD candidiate in Mechanical Engineering at MIT under the direction of a group of advisors: Dr. Brian Wardle, Dr. Gareth McKinley, Dr. Mehmet Toner, Dr. Michael Rubner, and Dr. Robert Cohen, working in the NECST Lab.  My research focuses on the research and design of a microfluidic device that incorporates porous carbon nanotubes (CNTs) within the channel, with the end goal of bioseparation and diagnostic capabilities.  We are pushing the boundaries of bioparticle capture and filtration, aiming to separate rare molecules on the nano scale that are evasive of current technologies.
