I develop and apply optogenetic tools to study physiology and development of excitable cells and tissue. I am advised by Andre Berndt. I received BS in Phyiology and MS in Applied Bioengineering at University of Washington. Before PhD study, I was with startup I co-founded NanoSurface Biomedical, and got trained from Deok-Ho Kim Lab.
