Steven is a Ph.D. student in Dr. Adam Wax's  BIOS Lab. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering as a Photonics Major. His undergraduate research focused on medical applications of functional polymer micro-fibers.

At Duke, he currently researches combined quantitative phase microscopy and FRET imaging. In particular, we seek to further the understanding of how the modulation of cellular ion dynamics affects cell processes and sub-cellular structures. With verification through FRET, we aim to expand QPMs abilities as a multifaceted technique for classifying cell characteristics and identifying disease states.
