I'm Victoria Grace Muir, an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania in the Burdick Group. My expertise is in designing granular hydrogels for bioengineering applications. I received my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2018. In Fall 2022, I will start as a Princeton Presidential Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Datta Group
