MAS.863 - 2016
THIS IS IT --- what we have ALL been waiting for! Check out my crazy journey through the Final Project, where I constructed a real-time wireless spectrophotometer, by integrating almost every module and skillset acquired during the semester!
The last weekly assignment: a fun, team-building project to assemble machines that make! Check it out!
A new spin on the final project guides my electronic designs this week! The Bluetooth module will come in soon, too.
So I designed an Eagle board (YIPEE!), but I didn't get to make it in time. However, I wrote a cute starter program that can do stuff with voltage values from the photogate (once the board is made)! Find out more.
I just quickly made a demo LED board, but will be working on Eagle designs this week!
Will this be useful for me in the lab? No idea -- let's see how I made it!
The first component of my final project: reading a phototransistor with the Arduino IDE. Take a look!
Want to see if I could mold and cast my group's logo successfully? Find out here!
Time to get back to the board. This time, let's make it blink and do other cool things!
Join me as I design a press-fit doghouse for our beloved little CBA puppy, Yoko!
The electronics gruel and horror continues with an introduction to the electronics design process *shivers*!
Check out my exciting week, where I 3D print a TAL effector protein binding to DNA, and scan my beloved stuffed animal, Ducky!
Join me as I begin the uphill battle of learning how to design and build electronics!
Learn about my adventure to creating a rotating pipette stand out of cardboard!
This week, we begin the long trek towards the final project. My idea? A rapid protyping, cost-effective spectrophotometer for cell culture monitoring: the FabSpec!
Hi friends! I am a first-year graduate student at the MIT Media Lab in the Molecular Machines group, where I develop nucleic acid technologies for applications in gene editing, synthetic biology, and DNA nanotechnology. Additionally, I have extensive experience in immunology, computer science, and (now) fabrication!
