I am a rising senior at The University of Akron studying Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Applied Mathematics. I am fascinated by the field of tissue engineering and the use of sustainably sourced materials in bioengineering. Besides my research, I compete in varsity track and field, as a long and triple jumper, for the Zips. My current goal is to obtain my PhD and work on musculoskeletal related research.
