PhD student (rotation)
With a background in biomechanics and tissue engineering, I became interested in cellular engineering and synthetic biology. So after completing my first lab rotation at Piret lab, I decided to join Yachie lab for my second lab rotation to learn more about genetics and genome editing tools. Currently, my focus is on prime editing technology.
