I was born in Suffern, NY, but spent most of my childhood in Destin, FL. I am a senior BME student and have worked in the Truskey lab since sophomore year. I previously developed a method to measure isokinetic active and passive force generation of tissue-engineered human skeletal muscle, or “myobundles.” My current project is to use this method to mechanically model and characterize the force-velocity relationship of the myobundles. I plan on using the research experience I have gained here at Duke and at the NIH to pursue a career in medicine.
