The Lucks lab would like to welcome Chemical & Biological Engineering PhD student Jenni Li! Before graduate school, she earned a B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. She worked in Hang Lu’s lab at Georgia Tech on studying C. elegans’ whole-brain dynamics and single-cell responses to aerosols on microfluidics platforms. She also worked on exploring the potentials of commercializing a research product through NSF I-Corps with a Lu Lab team and interned at a venture capital fund as an analyst.
In the Lucks lab, Jenni plans to work on cell-free biosensors and their diagnostic applications. She would also like to be involved in science outreach programs in the community. In her free time, she enjoys backpacking and kayaking. She does not believe pineapples belong on a pizza.
