I am a postdoctoral research associate in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
at MIT. I am working in the
Environmental Microfluidics Lab, with Professor
Roman Stocker, where I am using microscopy and microfluidics
to study physical interactions between marine bacteria and oil drops.
