Aoon (On) Rizvi (he/him) completed his PhD in chemistry at the University of California, Irvine where he studied how polymers self-assembly on the nanoscale using advanced microscopy methods. Aoon’s time at UC Irvine inspired him to use his expertise to study biological systems. At Stanford, Dr. Rizvi is studying how DNA is organized within human cells on the nanoscale. Beyond research, Aoon is passionate about mentorship of junior students and participating in outreach to get young kids excited about science. He has mentored undergraduate and graduate students to carryout research projects and navigate postgrad job opportunities. Aoon’s goal is to be a Professor and show students from disadvantage backgrounds that Science is for them too! Aoon love’s to travel and explore nature every chance he gets.
