PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

R&D Intern May 2017-Present

Medtronic, North Haven, CT

•Contributed to polymer and product development through:

•Prepared and tested over 1000 samples of raw product for moisture, tensile, and degradation testing resulting insight on prototype properties to further develop product.

•Directed in vitro degradation study through test execution and data analysis resulting in data to understand idea of products behavior in human body.

•Collaborated with quality control in running stability study of polymer through moisture content determination to better develop ideal storage conditions of polymer.

•Led in vitro tensile timepoint study on prototypes investigating strength parameters.

•Examined antibacterial properties of products through executing bacterial testing

•Communicated ideas and findings regarding product development to technically varying audiences.

Intern June 2015-August 2015

American Lung Association, East Hartford, CT

•Employed community outreach which increased awareness of organization’s events, goals, and purpose.

•Maintained organized record of patient information resulting in smooth transitions checking in and out of facility.

ACADEMIC RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Graduate Research Project, August 2017-Present

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of New Haven, BDMI Lab Branford, CT

•Investigated sustained drug release from a polymeric stent coating by:

•Designing a low cost-stent coating apparatus, resulting in an even stent coating.

•Determining optimal drug concentration for antibacterial/antithrombotic effects resulting in ideal biocompatibility.

•Testing drug release of stents at various time points to optimize storage conditions for practical use.
