My research focuses on using DNA to build computational devices and computer architectures. To this end, I have made contributions to projects spanning a variety of fields, ranging from synthetic biology to the photolithographic synthesis of DNA. For my most recent work, I am currently designing and fabricating integrated molecular circuits using DNA self-assembly as a bottom-up fabrication strategy and resonance energy transfer to perform the computation. As a doctoral student at Duke University, I developed a variety of new logic devices in this space with the goal of ultimately creating more complex molecular-scale circuitry, and I am now focused on experimentally validating these designs.
The list on the left is a chronological ordering of my major research projects. Please contact me if you have any questions.
