Ardemis A. Boghossian
Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)
BioArdemis Boghossian earned her B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Michigan. In 2012, she graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as an NDSEG Fellow with a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering under the supervision of Michael S. Strano. Her graduate work focused on applied nanotechnology, where she engineered nanoparticles for optical biosensing and light-harvesting energy applications. She pursued her research career as an NIH postdoctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in the laboratory of Frances H. Arnold. Working as a protein engineer, she applied methods of directed evolution to engineer cells that can electronically interface with electrodes. Ardemis Boghossian started her independent career at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in 2015, where her group leverages complementary skills in engineering synthetic nanomaterials and biological materials for medical and energy applications.
