Eric received his B.S. in Biomedical Engineering in 2004 and his M.S.E. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering in 2006 from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. His Master's research focused on the optimization of polymeric drug delivery formulations for cancer therapy. The summer after his Master's he worked at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain on ocular drug delivery particles. In the fall he joined the UC Berkeley/UCSF Graduate Group in Bioengineering and now works on micro fluidic devices for cell sorting in the Conboy and Sohn labs. Eric is also very involved in mentoring and founded Big BEAR, a graduate student group focused on guiding BioE undergraduates through their college years and as they decide on future options such as industry, medical school, or graduate school. Eric is currently an applications scientist at Zephyrus Biosciences, working on a platform technology for single-cell analysis.
