Biomedical Engineering Major with a minor in Packaging Engineering and a year of lab experience in an academic setting

Exceptional critical thinking and problem solving skills; Reliable team player while also having the ability to work independently; Excellent presentation and communication skills


Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey – New Brunswick

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering, May 2016

Minor in Packaging Engineering

Technical Projects, Labs, and Research

Medical Device Development Project – Rutgers University September 2015– May 2016

Assisted in the design of a tactile transducer with the hope of re-stimulating neural pathways that were once closed in stroke victims

This project is a prototype but could have patent potential in the near future

A business plan was made to present possible market value for our design

The Effect of Swelling Ratio on the Coulter Underestimation of Hydrogel Microsphere Diameters- Research Assistant, Professor Ronke Olabisi, Rutgers University May 2014 – August 2015

Worked part time on perfecting a technique that would control microsphere mesh size, which will allow for microspheres to travel through channels within the body

Created microspheres by combining a polymer precursor solution with a mineral oil solution that was photopolymerized through light emulsion

Maintained the viability of cells that were enclosed in a T flask by feeding them 10% serum with antibiotics every 1-2 days using sterile pipettes

Organ Transplants using T.E. Techniques - Rutgers University September 2014 - December 2014

Research paper discussing the remodeling of the appendix for the use as an allograft or autograft for Organ transplant

Helped to create the concept to use the appendix as a scaffold for needed organ transplants to reduce wait time for transplant and rejection rates

Developed methods using Tissue Engineering techniques in accomplishing that goal

oDecellurizing appendix using chemical agents such as peracetic acid, acetic acid and bases to remove nucleic acids, collagens and growth factors

o3D print desired organs onto appendix scaffold

oSeeding ESCs onto scaffold

oInducing vascularization onto the scaffold using FGFs and silver acetate
