Full bio

I am a Founder/CEO of Nodexus, an Angel-funded biotech startup currently housed in the Berkeley Skydeck Accelerator. Our company aims to use early detection to  stop the spread of metastatic cancer using a White-House recognized patented technology developed at the University of California, Berkeley. 

I helped developed the Nodexus core technology in graduate school, prior to which I was studying Mechanical Engineering at Caltech.  I have extensive experience in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research involving mechanical engineering, biology, fluids, circuits, and mathematical modeling and have also been involved in several projects dealing with solving business and technology management problems. My vision is to apply device design and engineering to solve medical problems and to develop commercial solutions to improve patient outcomes.
