Experience & Activities

Bay area microfluidics network

I am the Co-Founder of Bay Area Microfluidics Network. Our mission is to bring together leaders in microfluidic technologies to foster innovation and collaboration within and amongst the region’s academic institutions and industries. Specifically, we seeks to 1) encourage academic-industrial collaborations and partnerships; 2) connect prospective employees such as graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to companies looking for talent; and 3) facilitate cross-pollination of ideas between the foremost authorities in microfluidic technologies.

As the lead organizer, I initiate and organize events every quarter, expand and grow community, secure sponsorships, engage and collaborate with a wide range of organizations and arrange meetings with advisory board. We have successfully invited influential scientific leaders in microfluidics to our events and usually have approximately 100 attendees. Our community currently have almost 500 active members.

Our team branded SEC events through digital advertising efforts/campaigns, created and managed content for diverse social channels including SEC website, Facebook , and Twitter pages, and analyzed, reviewed and reported on community growth and engagement.




I’m an active member in The Stanford Chapter of Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW-Stanford). I work on SunPower Foundation project.

We partner with the SunPower Foundation, a nonprofit affiliate of photovoltaic manufacturer SunPower, to design a system to repurpose PV modules that have cosmetic defects. The recovered modules, will be deployed in underprivileged communities near the manufacturing sites to provide two main services: lighting and refrigeration. The manufacturing sites will be primary in real areas of developing countries, such as Manila, Philippines, Mexico and South Africa.
