Elizabeth joined the MDE program after her studies at Stanford University, where she was a full-time student athlete competing in gymnastics. That experience gave her a unique perspective on biomechanics and allowed her to personally interact with the healthcare and medical device industries in many ways. Throughout college, her interest in product design and healthcare grew, and as she continues her studies in MDE, she aims to further her understanding and experience with the intersection of research, design, and innovation. Elizabeth hopes to one day design and engineer effective medical technology and/or services that are more accessible to people living in underserved communities. When not studying, she enjoys reading, watching movies, playing sports, and spending time with friends and family.
Pre-MDE degree: B.S. in Biomechanical Engineering
