Rachel Smith

Rachel Smith is a biomedical engineer exploring processes of integrating biology into materials and current fabrication processes. She hopes such mergers will spark brand new relationships and applications in which our materials may inherit the traits of sensing, reacting, growing or cooperating organisms. Rachel has a long-time interest in engaging people in the community with explorational biological engineering and the demystification of genetic modification. She holds a Bachelor of Science from University of Virginia, and is currently a researcher at the Mediated Matter group of the MIT Media Lab.
