About Me

I joined the Virginia Tech - Wake Forest School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (SBES) in January, 2012 as Assistant Professor. Prior to that, I received B.S. degrees (2002) in physics and applied math from the University of Rochester, and did my PhD (2008) and postdoctoral work in physics and biomedical engineering, respectively, at Cornell University. I'm currently building up my research program ( in SBES to use micro/nanofabrication tools in combination with cell culture, in order to understand the interaction of cancer and cancer-associated cells with the tumor tissue environment. I'm particularly interested in understanding the tumor as a miniature ecosystem, in which environmental cues and stresses, as well as interaction and competition within heterogeneous cellular populations, can either inhibit or else promote cancer progression.
