WISDM Speaker Series: Sophia Liu
Tuesday, April 05, 2022 at 12:00pm to 1:00pmVirtual Event
This semester, the Women's League is proud to be continuing our partnership with WISDM, the Women in Innovation and STEM Database at MIT and the MIT Innovation Initiative to continue our popular speaker series.
Sophia Liu will discuss her career path, current research in developing tools for studying cell interactions across time and space, and the most useful advice she's been given along the way.
Sophia graduated in 2017 from MIT with a BS in Chemical-Biological Engineering. She is currently a PhD candidate at Harvard Biophysics and affiliated with the Harvard-MIT HST program, co-advised by Fei Chen and Eric Lander. As an undergraduate, she worked in Robert Langer's Lab on a microfluidic device for antigen delivery and in Alex Shalek's Lab on single-cell sequencing for neuronal nuclei. She is broadly interested in developing methods for measuring cell interactions in space and over time in immune contexts.
The Women in Innovation and STEM Database at MIT (WISDM) promotes the visibility of women in our academic community, increases gender diversity in innovation and entrepreneurship, and makes it easier to find talented and diverse speakers for various events. WISDM supports women and gender non-conforming MIT community members and upholds the Institute’s efforts to foster community, equity, and inclusion.
