Parker Lewis is a PhD candidate in the Pinkerton Research Group at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He received his BSE in Chemical and Biological Engineering from Princeton University in 2020 with a certificate in Engineering Biology. Parker’s research focuses on soft materials for drug delivery and in vivo imaging. During his undergraduate studies at Princeton, he helped write programs for the size characterization of drug-loaded nanoparticles. He also aided in developing in vivo imaging agents for Magnetic Particle Imaging at the University of Florida. He is continuing his research at Tandon as a PhD student in the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering department. Parker’s current project focuses on controlled drug delivery, developing a nanoparticle drug release platform for the prolonged treatment of chronic pain. Parker is also a member of the CBE Graduate Student Council in the Lifestyle, Community & Culture Committee.
