Tackling life's big challenges through the chemical sciences
... improve the way we deliver drugs and make them more targeted.
... my Dad! He encouraged me to be curious and value understanding things in depth (although he always preferred physics a little more!)
... hiking, painting, and I’ve recently given knitting a try too!
... I really enjoyed understanding what happens at an atomic level around us - just think about what’s going on with the screen you’re reading this on!
... seeing that the DNA I designed is well behaved and assembled correctly! This means I can see bright micron-scale droplets fluorescing under the microscope and interacting with each other!
... use my expertise in DNA nanotechnology to make artificial cells. There’s a lot more to understand and you could work on this too!
... allow yourself to fail. Explore what you’re good at and what you’re not so good at. Stay curious!
