Research Educator, DIY Diganostics
I have a diverse background in developing detection platforms. This includes working with classical optical detectors, two-component signal transduction pathways, fluorescent protein expression, respirometers, and most recently quantitative PCR. I’m excited to join the FRI and look forward to seeing what the students develop.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Professor
The Ellington Lab is a biotechnology lab that engineers nucleic acids and proteins for biomedical and other applications. Nucleic acid biosensors (aptamers, ribozymes) and nucleic acid circuits (DNA computers) are being harnessed to diagnostic applications, especially for point-of-care diagnostics in resource-poor settings and for facile tumor detection.
Computer Science Assistant Professor
I lead the Statistical Machine Learning Group at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas, Austin.
Welcome to the DIY Diagnostics stream, a part of the Freshman Research Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin.
The DIY lab works on both lab-wide and individual research projects.
