Sharon Makava ’11

I am studying chemical engineering. Over the past few semesters, I have been conducting research in the Biochemical and Chemical Engineering Laboratory with Professor Tripathi, as an independent study. My research has focused on the development of a microchip diagnostic for HIV drug resistance that is optimized for use in a resource limited setting. Its been a formative experience to apply the theoretical concepts covered in my coursework towards a real life application that has the potential to positively impact the lives of many around the globe.
