Tom Zajdel

I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, where I work in Michel Maharbiz's group. I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2012 with a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering.

I build nanoelectrode arrays to study bacterial chemotaxis and to make novel biosensors. In addition to my research work, I am passionate about education and am heavily involved in teaching. Recently, I co-developed UC Berkeley's MOOC and lecture a short course on physics to incoming engineering students.
