Key Accomplishments

I graduated from the Jerome Fisher Program in Management & Technology at the University of Pennsylvania, with degrees in Bioengineering and Operations and Information Management (OPIM) on the business side. I've been involved with two sensor/diagnostic device startups so far, as an engineering intern at Khosla-backed Adamant Technologies and cofounder of Drop Diagnostics. At Penn, I researched therapeutic and diagnostic applications of gold and iron oxide nanoparticles in the Tsourkas lab.
