I am a current Biomedical Engineering Masters student at Columbia University. I recently graduated with my BS in Biomedical Engineering from the University of South Carolina. Previously, I completed an REU under Dr. Ying Wang at Binghamton University where I worked to create a multi-organ microfluidic platform for breast cancer metastasis modeling.I am is excited to utilize my past research experiences and contribute to the GVN lab as a member of the organ on chip team.
I am interested in using tissue engineering, organ-on-chips, and stem cell models to understand developmental biology and apply this information to transplant and regenerative medicine.
