Deniz AlpayDesign for America Fellow


How can we better communicate our thoughts across vastly different disciplines? Deniz has been curious about this question throughout her years as a research assistant when she teamed up with chemists, engineers and patent attorneys to design nanoparticles for cancer therapy. Now more focused on systems that are visible to the naked eye, Deniz is excited to help interdisciplinary DFA teams achieve their design goals. In her spare time she enjoys dancing, hiking, and the occasional movie marathons with friends.
