We’ll be adding bio info on people over the next few days, but the basic info is there (finally!).
Amy Liao received a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Rice University in 2012. At Rice, she worked on developing and optimizing a multiplexed microfluidic immunoassay to diagnosis ovarian cancer. For her senior thesis, she designed a low-cost, portable endoscope for use in the developing world. Amy is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at UC Berkeley, with an emphasis in biomedical instrumentation. She’s jumping in to the NSF EFRI project.

Congratulations to Daniel! This award is given by the Electrochemical Society (ECS) and I especially like the fact that the award is about doing high impact work and having fun!
“One feature that distinguishes this award from others is that extracurricular activities and applicants joie de vivre are taken into account side-by-side with scientific excellence. Balancing the two is tricky both in picking the winner and in living your own life.”
