Biographical Statement

Khiem completed his bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware in 2023. There, he conducted research with Dr. Mark Blenner on the metabolic engineering of Y. lipolytica for optimum L-DOPA production. After graduation, he also briefly worked as a contracted research engineer at STRIDE, a non-profit organization aimed to improve Point-of-Use filtrations and reduce PFAS contaminations. In his spare time, Khiem likes to read (business & self-improvement), study the stock market, and optimize his Notion dashboard. Khiem's current research is focused on the development of microfluidic methods for manufacturing mRNA.

This summer Khiem will be interning at OceanSpray, who are "juiced" to have him join their team!
