    BioMy long term professional goal is to lead academic research that probes cell behavior using custom bio-microsystems and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET). In my PhD I designed, fabricated, and characterized innovative electroactive polymer micro-actuators. In the Pruitt lab at Stanford I studied metrology of cell forces and techniques to interface between silicon devices with biological cells. In the Dunn lab, I am applying microfluidic platforms to study developmental biology and using protein micropatterning to improve the throughput of cellular cryo-ET.
