Dr. Mary Machado
Dr. Machado received her Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 2008. She attained a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from Brown University in 2016 with a focus on the materials analysis of nanomodified endothracheal tubes under the dynamic conditions of the respiratory system. Her thesis advisor was Dr. Thomas Webster. Her focus now lies in the electric field extraction of DNA from dried blood spots.
Dr. Adam Snider
Adam received his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Tufts University in 2011. He worked for Quanterix Inc. in Lexington, MA and NABsys Inc. in Providence, RI before joining the Tripathi lab. His research focus is in microfluidic applications for next generation sequencing. He defended his thesis titled "Transport, Adsorption and Reaction of Genomic DNA in Nano-, Micro-, and Meso-Scale Geometries" in January 2020.
Lindsay received her Bachelors of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic University (WPI) in 2017. Lindsay joined the Tripathi Lab in 2017 and her research focus is in loop mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) and Next Generation Sequencing DNA library preparation automation for preimplantation genetic testing (PGT).
Celeste joined the lab in 2018 as a Masters student and has continued as a PhD student in 2019. She is working on investigating coverslip removal forces using various coatings.
Christina was a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow who worked on developing new technologies for prenatal diagnostics. Christina's thesis was titled "Using Trophoblast Cells to Develop Biotechnological Approaches that Advance Prenatal and Women's Health."
Ph.D., MPH, 2019
Rachel's work focused on the intersection of global health and point-of-care diagnostics with microfluidic technologies. Rachel's thesis was titled "Sample Preparation and Nucleic Acid Extraction for Molecular Diagnostics: Innovations for Resource Limited Settings."
Franks research included microfluidic suspension plug transport, fluid transport modeling for proto-organ engineering and bead-based biomolecular isolation for microfluidic diagnostic applications. Frank's thesis was titled "Micro- and Meso-fluidics for Automated Biomedical Sample Preparation."
