In 2021, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from North Carolina State University. During my undergraduate years, I worked as a research assistant in biochemistry and biomechanics. I also had the opportunity to work in the medical device industry as a design and manufacturing engineer and supplier quality engineer. These experiences contributed to my desire to apply my background in biomedical sciences and mechanics to medical robotics. I am especially interested in improving the quality of life for patients and healthcare providers through human centered design.
Currently, I am pursing a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis on product design and development. My career goal is to create impactful engineering products that address unmet needs and solve unheard problems. I am interested in designing novel surgical tools and devices. I recently joined the Advanced Medical Technologies Lab (AMTL) at CU Boulder as an MS Thesis student. I will be supporting the Robotic Capsule Endoscope project that focuses on developing a mobile electromechanical device to improve outcomes of colonoscopy procedures. In the future, I hope to work in an interdisciplinary role merging research and development and project management.
