I am an assistant professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Oregon State University. I work on enabling technology platforms for application to life sciences and healthcare fields. I previously led Bialanx, an emerging bioelectronics company developing CMOS-based biochemical detection for a set of focused diagnostic applications.

I was a graduate student and postdoc in the Bioelectronic Systems Lab at Columbia University. My research leveraged integrated circuit technology for real-time, label-free detection of chemical analytes using on-chip piezoelectric resonators. 

I was a co-founder of Helixis, a biological instrumentation spin-out from Caltech, based in Carlsbad, CA. We designed a small, low-cost qPCR machine, which is now available through Illumina.  I have worked in an R&D capacity at Cavium Networks and The Aerospace Corporation. More recently, I performed technology and market assessment as an associate for a New York City venture capital firm investing in early-stage life sciences companies. I also work as part of a small team designing high-speed electrophysiology amplifiers at Chimera Instruments

I received a BS in Electrical Engineering from Caltech and MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University.
