Sasha Ebrahimi received his B.S. in chemical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016. His research is currently focused on developing nucleic acid-based probes for detecting analytes in living cells. This work seeks to create tools that enable researchers and clinicians to understand how the spatial distribution of analytes impacts cells and to study the evolution of chemical signatures as a disease progresses, potentially changing paradigms related to how diseases like cancer are diagnosed, studied, and treated.
