I am a second year undergraduate student majoring in Biomedical-Mechanical Engineering at the University of Southern California. Even as a little girl, I was intrigued by the live organisms and machines - how they function and interact with each other. In high school I co-founded a FIRST robotics team, where I also served as the head builder. My team made it to the Robotics World Championship. At USC I am the design lead of the Human Powered Vehicle Team - we prototype and construct low cost vehicles for use in underdeveloped or inaccessible areas. In the future I plan to combine graduate studies in Engineering and Medical School. I am excited to work on the Snapping Shrimp project in Professor Eliasson’s Shockwave Lab, and research possible applications of shock waves.
