Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering

University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston

Since 2015 I have been at at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in a group developing and characterizing therapeutic antibodies targeting cancer and infectious diseases. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering from Stanford and a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the UC Irvine. As a postdoc, I fulfilled a dream of living and working outside the US. I conducted tissue engineering research at the National University of Singapore. Then, I spent two years as an assistant professor in a regenerative medicine group at the University of Tsukuba in Japan. Returning to the US, I expanded my work in science communication, pursuing a long-term goal of work in science policy. My dream job would be working to facilitate international research collaborations to address issues where cooperation benefits us all, such as infectious diseases and redesigning energy production to protect human health and environments.
