Atrouli Chatterjee is a PhD candidate in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
She earned a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering at UC Irvine in 2019, Master of Engineering at Cornell University in 2016, and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley in 2015.
In the Gorodetsky group, Atrouli focuses on the expression and optical characterization of a cephalopod structural protein (called reflectin) in bacterial and mammalian cells.
Prior to joining the group, Atrouli studied breast cancer cell motility on piezoelectric membranes, tested various fabrication processes for polymeric substrates (e.g., electrospinning, plasma grafting, etc.), and designed bio-compatible drug-delivery scaffolds for treating near-sightedness (myopia). She is interested in developing biomaterials and living systems for applications in medical diagnostics and therapeutic.
