Joel Voldman, Ph. D., is an Assoociate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. Prof. Voldman received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1995. He received the Masters degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, in 1997 and his Ph.D. from MIT in 2001. Following this, he performed postdoctoral training in George Church's lab at Harvard Medical School. He has been on the MIT faculty since July 2002. In 2004, he was awarded the NBX Career Development Chair, and in 2006 he was promoted to associate professor.

Sarvesh Varma (MechE)

sarvesh@mit.edu

Sarvesh received his B.A.Sc degree in Nanotechnology Engineering (Honors) from the University of Waterloo, Canada. He subsequently joined the Biological Microtechnology and BioMEMS group in the summer of 2010 as a SM student from the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He is currently exploring methods to apply cellular engineering towards studying the impact of microtechnologies and lab-on-a-chip processes on cell health and physiology. In his spare time, he enjoys various escapades involving travelling, photography, and engaging percussive music.

Dohyun Lee

dohyun@mit.edu

Dohyun Lee received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Bio and Brain Engineering from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), Korea, in 2008, 2009, and 2014, respectively. His thesis was microdroplet-based screening of freshwater green algae under the direction of Prof. Je-Kyun Park. He also worked as a postdoctoral research associate in Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of California at Irvine, under the direction of Prof. Abraham P. Lee. He has been developed novel nano/microdevices for precision medicine, diagnosis of sepsis and inflammation, and single-cell phenotyping and genotyping. His current research focuses on electrical profiling of septic blood and high-throughput microfluidic systems for single-cell electrofusion. Outside the laboratory, Dohyun enjoys playing golf, watching baseball, and traveling.
