How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Chemical Engineer with computational and laboratory experience in bioengineering research. A meticulous problem solver that can start a project from scratch or build off established work. Demonstrated ability to design entire project pipelines safely, from the design and execution of the experiment to automated data analysis and model generation. Research experience in academic, industry, and government settings that compliments the scientific curiosity of a lifelong learner.
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are pervasive environmental contaminants, and their relative stability and high bioaccumulation potential create a challenging risk assessment problem. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) data, in principle, can be synthesized within a quantitative adverse outcome pathway (qAOP) framework to link molecular activity wi...
Vitrification is a promising cryopreservation technique for complex specimens such as tissues and organs. However, it is challenging to identify mixtures of cryoprotectants (CPAs) that prevent ice formation without exerting excessive toxicity. In this work, we developed a multi-CPA toxicity model that predicts the toxicity kinetics of mixtures cont...
Successful cryopreservation of complex specimens, such as tissues and organs, would greatly benefit both the medical and scientific research fields. Vitrification is one of the most promising techniques for complex specimen cryopreservation, but toxicity remains a major challenge due to the high concentration of cryoprotectants (CPAs) needed to vit...
Mass transfer of protectant chemicals is a fundamental aspect of cryopreservation and freeze-drying protocols. As such, mass transfer modeling is useful for design of preservation methods. Cell membrane transport modeling has been successfully used to guide design of preservation methods for isolated cells. For tissues, though, there are several ma...
Cryopreservation in a vitrified state has vast potential for long-term storage of tissues and organs that may be damaged by ice formation. However, the toxicity imparted by the high concentration of cryoprotectants (CPAs) required to vitrify these specimens remains a hurdle. To address this challenge, we previously developed a mathematical approach...
