I am interested in tissue engineering of joint tissues in the body such as bone, cartilage, tendon, ligament, and muscle. I have various experiences in mechanical testing of medical devices from my co-op at Boston Scientific, and cell culture experience from my summer fellowship work at Akron General Medical Center where I worked on a project for bone tissue engineering. I hope to develop novel solutions to joint tissue degeneration through the use of biocompatible, biodegradable materials.
