Jinglin graduated from Caltech with a PhD in medical engineering. She holds a BS in engineering science from Smith College, with a minor in music. As an undergrad, Jinglin conducted research in biofilm formation, protein-based brain therapeutics modeling, and crystallization process optimization. She joined Dr. Gharib's lab in 2015 and worked on fabricating carbon nanotube based micro-needles for painless drug delivery. As a Resnick Fellow, Jinglin investigated carbon nanotube fabricated superhydrophobic material for applications in seawater desalination. Her goal was to design of a more efficient, sustainable, and low energy solar desalination system with continuous operation.
