Master's Student, CBE
Rawli is a graduate student in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering interested in pursuing the interfacial free energy of intracellular condensates. He grew up in northern Maryland, where he learned to value blue crabs and Old Bay. He later graduated from Princeton University with his B.S.E. in Chemical and Biological Engineering. Rawli began his foray into cellular domains working with Kathleen Gabrielson at Johns Hopkins Medicine on cardiovascular toxicities due to breast cancer chemotherapy and chronic mild stress models for the study of natural disaster effects in utero. With his growing interest in physiochemical biology, Rawli joined Celeste Nelson’s Tissue Morphodynamics Group at Princeton, investigating the expression and transport of the developmental glycoprotein, tenascin-C, during avian lung morphogenesis. Before coming back to wear more orange and joining the Brangwynne Lab, he was a consultant for Deloitte in their Federal Health practice. Apart from research, Rawli enjoys hiking, volleyball, oil painting, and immersing himself in new cultures.
