Biography

Alejandro joined the Shalek and Manalis Labs as a research technician in the spring of 2017. He received his B.S. in Biological Engineering with a minor in Literature from MIT in 2015. His work aims to couple suspended microchannel resonator technology and single-cell RNA-sequencing to study the heterogeneity in drug response of clinical cancer samples. Outside of lab, Alejandro enjoys narrative arts, drawing, and hot pot.
