I am a graduate from the University of Virginia with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. I currently attend the University of Washington and plan to receive my Masters of Science degree in Bioengineering this June, 2012. I have experience working in a variety of biomedical fields, including signal processing and imaging, bioinformatics, and prosthetics and rehabilitation medicine. I intend to continue this pursuit through a career in the Biotech industry, as a researcher and technology entrepreneur.
Despite these credentials, I fit few traditional engineering stereotypes. I consider myself a true extrovert, love critical writing and the arts, and am a practiced public speaker. I excel at conveying information and ideas verbally.
The most rewarding ventures I have been a part of combine both scientific innovation and powerful people-oriented clinical impact. Whether extending the lives of premature infants or improving the quality of life for lower-leg amputees, I find passion thorough the human component of engineering. Not surprisingly, I wish to apply my education towards developing tools and technologies that will help save lives.
I am pursuing a position as a scientist and salesperson in the Seattle Biotech field. As a student researcher well versed in basic, hands-on research and as a a biotech employee experienced in practical design, application, and marketing, I will have an immediate impact on any industrial team.
