Rishabh Jain

I am a junior from the San Francisco Bay Area studying Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry. I believe that engineering not only provides a set of tools to think about and solve problems, but also a medium to empower the underserved and to celebrate human creativity. I currently research self-assembling immunogens in the Collier Group as a Pratt Fellow and have studied injectable hydrogels for stroke repair in the Segura Lab as a Huang Fellow. Through the Science, Law, and Policy Lab, I also evaluated the ethical concerns around DNA collection from immigrants to the U.S. and the privacy implications of thermal facial recognition surveillance during COVID-19. In my free time, I am an avid cook and squash player. I hope that the conversations in Reimagining Tech will continue to nurture my interests at the intersection of engineering and ethics, sociology, and health policy.
