Eugenia Romantseva Staff EngineerNational Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)Eugenia (Jane) Romantseva is a staff engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), supporting the Cellular Engineering Group and working to provide a foundation of measurement assurance to support the control and rational design of biological function. Jane leads NIST’s efforts to develop measurement tools and methods for reproducible and comparable use of cell-free systems. As part of this effort, she automates steps in typical cell-free workflows and adapts and optimizes common cell-based protocols for use with cell-free systems. She also applies her extensive experience in device fabrication, microfluidics, and optics towards building a platform for peptide sequencing. Jane received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Boston University and a M.S. in Material Science and Engineering from Johns Hopkins University.
