Past and Ongoing Projects

December 13, 2018

Lithographic nanofabrication is often limited to successive fabrication of two-dimensional (2D) layers. We present a strategy for the direct assembly of 3D nanomaterials consisting of metals, semiconductors, and biomolecules arranged in virtually any 3D geometry. We us...

A video produced for Edward Boyden's Expansion Microscopy TED Talk by myself and Daniel Goodwin.

In the EPIC design competition at BU my two teammates and I designed a gasket sensor to satisfy the needs of the competition sponsor - Garlock. This design, instead of integrating sensors into a product, took the product and showed how its bulk material could act as a...

The title Inner Visages  speaks to the ability of these photographs to elicit a response about the subconsious or otherwise hidden emotional states of my subjects. This feat is accomplished by utilizing painted light to evoke certain states for each individual's person...

In this project I attempt to develop an implantable MEMS pressure sensor capable of detecting tiny pressure changes (fractions of a mbar) within the eye. To better treat glaucoma it is imperative to know when intra-ocular pressure (IOP) changes even a little because it...

Cochlear implants have historically used electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve. The system which follows makes the case that infrared light is a superior stimulus. Advances are shown in software configurability, density of stimulus, and delivery of light through...

Since the completion of my senior thesis I have gradually improved on the original optical setup by adding spacial filtration and a diversified means of light manipulation. With my newly built darkroom, I have begun more work on this series.

I constructed this image by processing eighteen raw captures from the Hubble Telescope. Data was taken from the Hubble Legacy Archive and each channel processed with FITS Liberator and combined using photoshop. My goal was to create the highest quality composit of this...

Shishi Odoshi are Japanese bamboo water fountains originally intended to ward off deer from gardens. The term "Shishi Odoshi" literally means deer scarer. In this project my partner and I created a six foot tall version of the traditional Japanese fountain with multipl...

Metal flower sculpture that blooms when exposed to fire. The sculpture exploits a strip of bimetal which is a composite of two metals each with different coefficients of expansion. The metal expands faster on one side than the other causing it to bend when heated.
