Hi. I'm Transon.

Bioengineer, Photographer, Food Enthusiast

About

I'm a biomedical engineer with 10 years of R&D experience.
(Here's my curriculum vitae.)

I develop technologies that help advance the world of biomedical research, from microfluidic tools to in vitro organ model culturing platforms to robotic systems that find better treatments for cancer patients.

I speak the languages of hardware, software, and biology, and can bring those three worlds together to create something awesome.

I also strongly believe in the power of good communication, especially among scientists and engineers. We may have the ability to change the world, but there's no use if we can't explain how we're going to do it.

Hobbies

Food

My interest in cooking started back in high school with daily episodes of Emeril Live. I started a food blog to keep track of what I cooked, and it's evolved into a series of detailed, step-by-step recipes with lots of pictures. Check it out!

Photography

I bought my first DSLR (a Nikon D40) in 2007 and haven't looked back. Aside from food photography (which you can see on my food blog), you can see my other photos on my Flickr profile.

Piano

Music has played a significant role in my life; I've played piano in an orchestra, snare in a marching band, and marimba in a drum corps. Nowadays, I make piano recordings and show them on my YouTube channel.
