Fourth Year Biomedical Engineering Major from Alamo, Ca
As part of Quality of Life Plus SA, I aspire to refine my technical skills to contribute to innovation in the healthcare space. The past two years, I have gained hands-on experience working on quarterly and formal design projects, the most impactful being Braces for Bill. During the Braces for Bill FDP, my team and I worked to create a customized, energy-assisted ankle-foot-orthotic which would help Bill, who has atrophying calf muscles, hike uphill with stability. Due to the onset of the pandemic before our manufacturing period, our project will continue through the next quarter. This year, I look forward to joining the officer tech core as Quartermaster, where I will be able to provide students with resources in an online format, purchase and organize lab materials, 3D print, lead and help others lead student workshops and quarterly design projects, and ensure lab safety (once in-person access is allowed). Just as previous officers, I am excited to further develop a collaborative and productive environment for the QL+ community!
