I am an architect and biologist by education, and I am super excited to teach biodesign studios at NuVu. In my academic research at MIT, I work on growing, shaping, and patterning materials that are living and bioactive for sustainable future product and architectural design. This past September I finished my dissertation on biologically active materials in architecture, and I now work as a postdoctoral researcher at the Synthetic Biology center at MIT.  In my work I combine tools from architectural design, digital fabrication, materials science, and synthetic biology, collaborating with both creative scientists and creative designers.
