Professional Profile

Biomedical Engineering Master’s student at Florida Institute of Technology concentrating in biomechanics, robotics, and the use of computation models and finite element analyses. Currently a teacher assistant for Biomedical Engineering Department and Engineering Intern for the Engineering Test Team at Medicomp Inc. During undergraduate, worked three consecutive years for Department of Biological Sciences, Neurobiology Lab at Florida Institute of Technology. Undergraduate senior design project included designing a robotic exoskeleton for use in micro-gravity environment to reduce muscle atrophy in astronauts. Bachelor’s Degree concentration is in biomechanics. Undergraduate research involved the use of sensory neurobiology/ neural mechanisms, and immunohistochemistry. Now seeking to contribute my experience, knowledge, skills and expertise to the desired workplace.
