Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
University of Idaho
TEACRS Alumnus - 2015
I joined the TEACRS Program after completing my PhD in Biomedical Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. As a TEACRS trainee, I conducted my research with Catherine Kuo in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the School of Engineering.
My research focused on characterizing biophysical factors that regulate embryonic tendon development with an emphasis on mechanical development and cues.
As part of the TEACRS Program, I taught a new upper level course called "Building and Repairing Body Parts: Current Strategies in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine" at UMass - Boston.
I am continuing my career as a faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Idaho.
