Professional Work History

UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA, Tucson, AZ 2017 – Present

Barista

Deliver the “wow” factor while greeting customers and preparing their orders to their satisfaction. Work within a team environment to achieve operational and business goals. Plan and execute in-depth-training to acclimate junior staff and lead them through the on-boarding process.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM AT ICAGEN-T, Phoenix, AZ 5/2017 – 8/2017

Industry Student Researcher (Volunteer)

Brought onto a team with this reputable drug discovery company, as one of the only Bachelor of Science students in a program that is only available to master’s degree graduates. Leveraged biomedical engineering principles and education to assist in research that was focused on developing innovative techniques to analyze amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Strictly adhered to all operating and laboratory policies and procedures.

Conceptualized, devised, created, and standardized procedure to test ALS muscle samples using SolidWorks.

Leveraged engineering education to design and create a machine mount that consistently tested muscles. Created a prototype utilizing 3D printing polymer science and implemented strict quality controls. Handed prototype over to a reputable engineering firm for further development that was required to refine the prototype.

Increased efficiency by 40% by cutting significant time off the pre-development phase.

UNDERGRADUATE BIOLOGY RESEARCH PROGRAM AT UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA, Tucson, AZ 2015 – 2017

Undergraduate Student Researcher

Contributed to various projects while working in the capacity of Student Researcher. Created comprehensive and critical research laboratory techniques in biomedical pursuits such as biomechanical analysis of glaucoma, neurological and behavioral study of ant colonies, and prostate organ-on-a-chip applications. Prepped and completed tissue engineering works within the Integrated Microsystem Laboratory.

Led new prostate cell line project and created tissue engineered device. Investigated function of device and cells versus normal organ function.

Mentored and instructed 3 laboratory technicians on the process of replicating the results of the study.

Realized a 50% reduction in time by leveraging prior experience in the research field including the knowledge of proper documentation and results communication.

Completed behavioral analysis project which included taking time-lapsed videos of individual ant colonies. Introduced humanely standardized stimulus and recorded behavior. Documented and reported results to project mentor.

Reported to the Soft Tissue Biomechanics Laboratory as a research apprentice. Assisted the Lab Manager to quantify project using high-powered laser to take images of the sclera and evaluate the level of deformation as glaucoma progressed.
