Achini Opathalage joins us from Brandeis University where she received her Ph.D. in Physics working in theĀ Fraden Lab working on X-ray transparent microfluidics for protein crystallization and biomineralization. After her Ph.D., she joined the Dogic Lab to work on the collective dynamics of microtubules. She also served as the Assistant Director of Brandeis’s MRSEC Microfabrication Facility. We’re excited to have her here!
