Hi, I am a postdoctoral fellow in Karp Lab. My current research interests involve development of next generation biomaterials, including particles and hydrogels for drug delivery. I received a PhD in 2013 from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India, where I studied under the supervision of Prof. Rinti Banerjee. My work was focused on the development and evaluation of stimuli-responsive nanoparticles for the delivery of single and combinatorial anti-cancer drugs, both systemically as well as through non-invasive routes. Other than research, I am very passionate about music and have received formal training in Indian Classical Vocal Music (Khayal style).

I am a postdoctoral associate who is co-advised by Professor Langer (The Koch Institute  for Integrative Cancer Research, MIT) and Professor Karp (Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School). I received the Ph.D. Degree from Changchun institute of applied chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2016. My research interests focus on the exploitation of stimuli-responsive materials, the controlled drug delivery, as well as stem-cell based therapy. Other than research, I enjoy traveling.

I joined the Karp lab as a postdoctoral associate in the summer of 2017, after I graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, with a doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering. My doctoral research includes the mechanics and mechanobiology of cells as well as the application of human pluripotent stem cells for modeling early human embryogenesis in vitro. My postdoctoral research joining the forces of the Karp lab and the Langer lab focuses on adult stem cells, biomedical devices, and regenerative medicine. Aside from lab work, I enjoy books, jigsaw puzzles, exercises and many outdoor activities.

I am a postdoctoral research fellow in Karp Lab. I majored in Biotechnology and earned Ph.D. degree at Yonsei University, Republic of Korea. I studied with interest on neural and bone tissue engineering using human stem cells under Professor Seung-Woo Cho. Recently I am interested in recapitulation of in vivo-like pancreatic islet niches for functional islet differentiation of human stem cells. Aside from lab work, I enjoy traveling, swimming, and watching baseball game.
