Biography

I am a first year graduate student in the Davis lab. I completed my Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech, with a minor in Materials Science and Engineering. During my undergrad, I worked in an ocular biomechanics lab studying microgravity-induced optic nerve sheath remodeling from a cellular perspective. I also investigated the effects of amyloid beta and mechanical stretch on astrocyte activation. For my Ph.D., my primary research interest is in engineering artificial exosomes to deliver required signals for cardiac tissue regeneration and repair. Aside from this, I am currently also working on designing injectable hydrogels to activate Notch signaling in cardiac progenitor cells.
