my name is Em:

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at The University of Washington in KurtLab in the Mechanical Engineering Department. My current research is developing MR-compatible devices and signal processing for diagnostic purposes and determining the mechanical properties of the human brain in-vivo. I have my M.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering, specializing in Medical Device Engineering, from Stevens Institute of Technology and my B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from The College of New Jersey. My undergraduate research was in assistive devices. My independent research project was developing and testing a five-fingered 3-D printed gip and pinch force augmenting exoskeleton for the human hand.
