Utilizing both her mechanical engineering (B.S.) and biomedical engineering (M.S.) backgrounds, she is focused
on tissue engineering and medical device testing. "I've been really happy with the
skills I gained through my time at Tufts. I feel prepared to do the work I'm supposed
to do, and having gotten my master's in BME has opened doors to exciting work that I
never would have been able to do with just my bachelor's in ME. Still living in Medford...
feels strange to be right next to Tufts but not be a Tufts student anymore!"
