Undergraduate Research Assistant at Clemson University
Under the direction of Dr. Delphine Dean and in cooperation with the MUSC Medical Center, I am working with a team to design a novel medical device. I developed a working understanding of a specialized field of engineering knowledge in order to make meaningful contributions. After a summer of daily research, prototyping, verification testing, and data analysis, a preliminary patent was filed. The invention has attracted commercial interest from several medical device companies and I engaged in communications with intellectual property professionals and industry representatives to further the development of the device.
