I am a biomedical engineer with an executive MBA and 15 years of lab experience in cutting-edge science including biomaterials, stem cell biology and tissue engineering/regeneration. My current role as an educator involves developing new industrial courses, a co-op program, and also leading projects which focus on the patient perspective. As biomedical engineers, our work is centered on helping people and I am creating opportunities for students to apply their knowledge to projects which help the disabled. I have been an invited speaker for schools ranging from Elementary to Ivy League universities and I am passionate about innovation, STEM initiatives and improving biomedical pedagogy via engagement and experiential learning. My goal is to continue to educate people on the importance of science, research and innovation, to continue developing patient-centric research opportunities, and further recruitment of young students, especially women, into STEM careers.
