Class of 2015, Mechanical Engineering
"This past summer I was as an intern at the Center for Bionic Medicine at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. I worked in the Prosthesis Design and Controls Lab where I supported research and design of a novel light weight, bionic controlled powered knee prosthesis. I will be continuing my bio medical engineering pursuits this fall with a senior design project where I will be working on hydro-forming rasps for hip implantation surgeries. I hope to pursue a Masters in Science at the Oxford Institute of Biomedical Engineering, which would allow me to better understand the mechanics of the body's complex joints and limbs. I am applying for the Rhodes Scholarship through CUSE to help me achieve that goal. My future work will be centered around developing lighter weight and lower cost thought-controlled prosthetic devices. "
