Member Bio:

Michael J. Fink is a postdoctoral research associate with George M. Whitesides at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard. His research investigates the influence of water in interactions of drug molecules with proteins, the role of fatty acids and its bacterial producers in the human gut, and methods for the storage of information in molecules.

Michael was born and raised in Vienna and obtained his undergraduate and graduate education in chemical engineering at TU Wien (Ph.D. 2013, biochemical engineering). He lives in Boston since August 2015.

Together with Magdalena Klemun (B.Sc. 2011, electrical engineering, TU Wien; now at MIT), Michael currently leads and coordinates the joint efforts of three Austrian student and ex-pat networks in the Greater Boston area (ASCINA, Harvard Club of Austria, TU Wien alumni club Boston). Magdalena and Michael aim to create a professional and social framework for exchange for all Austrians in Boston, to host eminent speakers from Austria for interesting events, and to promote the communication of our experiences abroad as a benefit for students and professionals back home.
