Two years ago, while studying Mechanical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, a friend and I co-founded a med-tech company, Sparo Labs. We're building a technology to accurately measure lung function through a smartphone-connected, pocket-sized device that empowers people with asthma to better understand, track, and proactively manage their disease so they can discover what most of us take for granted — a simple breath.
Before Sparo Labs, I did research in the Soft Nanomaterials Laboratory while at Washington University in St. Louis. During my research, I co-authored two articles in the journals Small and Analytical Chemistry focused respectively on molecular self-organization and a microfluidic plasmonic paper-based sensor platform.
During college I also worked as a research assistant in the Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry Laboratory and the Center for Computational Mechanics, and worked at the Apple Store on the side.
