I graduated from The George Washington University in May 2018 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Electrical Engineering. For my senior capstone project, I helped develop a remote exercise monitoring system for physical therapy patients in low-resource settings. Part of my passion for global health stems from my experiences living and working in Central America. From 2015-2018, I worked with GW’s Engineers Without Borders chapter to implement a water access and sanitation project in rural El Salvador. In 2016, I worked in Nicaragua for two months with Engineering World Health to repair hospital equipment and address clinical research needs. I view my upcoming experience at Rice as an opportunity to expand on these experiences and immerse myself in learning how to design medical technology, particularly assisting with clinical need identification. I am enthusiastic to join the Rice BIOE and GMI communities as an aspiring change agent in the global health sphere.
