A recent graduate of UC Davis in biomedical engineering seeking a research and development position


Proficient in Matlab and C programming, SQL, ImageJ, Labview, Autodesk Inventor, PCR, Instron testing

Extensive experience in extracting data from Excel and analyzing it using self-coded Matlab scripts

Well-versed in complex independent research utilizing Material Testing System (MTS)


University of California, Davis

Bachelor of Science, Biomedical Engineering – June 2012


Research Intern, UC Davis Medical Center 6/2011 to Present

Devised and implemented methods of analysis in a study probing the effects of environmental conditions within de-mineralized (equine) bone matrix during tensile loading

• The environmental conditions studied were hydrogen bonding and varying temperature independently

Combined Material Testing System (MTS) and high-speed video of the specimens during loading to create

and monitor bone whitening, a phenomenon similar to polymer crazing that is a factor determining bone’s toughness

Analyzed data using image analysis within ImageJ and Matlab

• Specific operations performed in Matlab:

Registered frames from high-speed video

Segmented specimen within each registered video frame

Calculations performed within Matlab:

Quantified relative amounts of whitening due to mechanical loading

Quantified standard mechanical bulk properties from stress-strain curves produced in Excel:

• Fracture energy toughness

• Poisson’s ratio

• Elastic modulus

• Ultimate stress and ultimate strain


My work on how hydrogen bonding affects de-mineralized bone whitening will appear in a publication titled “Stress-induced Whitening Occurs in De-mineralized Bone Matrix” that is currently under review

Poster titled “Whitening occurs in De-mineralized Bone” - ORS 2012 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA.

Authored a research paper describing the individual research I had done over the past two academic quarters on how temperature affects bone whitening for research lab credit


Completed a Capstone Design Project spanning the last two quarters of my fourth year in which a large scale injection device was created to euthanize and to collect a blood sample of large mammals, specifically whales, which included the use of the mill, lathe, drill press, and band saw

Relevant coursework: Engineering Problem Solving using Matlab, Capstone Biomedical Engineering Design, Biomedical Instrumentation Laboratory, Clinical Applications for Biomedical Device Design, Properties of Materials, Electronic Circuits and Systems (w/ lab), Biomedical Signals and Control, Biomaterials, Topics in Biomedical Engineering with an emphasis on cellular and molecular engineering, Human Physiology (w/ lab), Thermodynamics, Biomedical Engineering, Probability & Statistics, Bio-transport Phenomena, Mathematical Methods for Biological Systems (w/ lab), Quantitative Concepts in Bio-molecular Engineering, and Protein Engineering


Currently tutoring students in all levels of math

Currently learning Python
