Hello, fellow human! I am Lisa, and I hail from San Francisco proper. By the grace and luck of a series of random events, I am a graduate student at the MIT Media Lab Molecular Machines group, where I am filling my metaphorical toolbox with an assortment of skills I can use to terraform (exo)planets.

I was trained as a biochemist at Boston University, and previously did research in the Douglas Lab at UCSF, and the Church Lab in the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard Medical School. I learned my life skills from TestMagic, where I worked as an administrative assistant.

In my spare time, I write nonsensical haikus and dream about space. I also dabble in digital illustration.
