Deniz Vurmaz is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at NYU-Tandon, studying under Prof. John T. McDevitt. Her research is developing and integrating innovative diagnostic approaches to advance human health, focusing on programmable bio-nano-chip systems for multi-organ failure. Beyond basic science, she is a veteran of entrepreneurial competitions, having already won a NYU Green Grant and an award from the AABE for her team idea. Her goal is to be a bridge between academia and industry and, therefore, she has been preparing herself in this capacity. Before even joining NYU, she was a project manager at an international renewable energy company. Using her leadership and entrepreneurship skills, she and her team established a start-up called “Lost-Bytes,” a data-driven food-waste management and renewable energy company that designs and employs Artificial Intelligence solutions to old school machines. She lectures in high profile renewable energy gatherings, such as the recently held Exxon-Mobil’s Energy Day. As the team leader, she has also been selected to NSF’s I-Corps Program and recently has funded by this program. She takes Launchpad Business classes upon becoming a member of GreenFeen Cooperative, which collects food-waste and composts in Bronx. She grew up in Turkey and now lives in NYC.
