I build computer simulations of chemical plant air emissions for Mitchell Scientific. I received my BS in Chemical Engineering with a concentration in Biomolecular Engineering from Mississippi State University. My Mom and Grandpa were both engineers and they taught me to love asking questions about how the world worked. While studying for my degree and when I first graduated I worked for a specialty chemical manufacturing company. My job as a process engineer gave me an understanding of typical plant day to day operations and lead me to my current job of modeling just that. I work with companies to accurately portray the emissions their processes produce and trouble shoot steps that emit more than expected. As an engineer I've had opportunities to grow stem cell cartilage on artificial bones, over see the production of a phase II trial cancer medicine, sample raw ibuprofen powder by the kilogram, test pyrophoric materials in dry boxes, and do science experiments to show kids that don't care how much fun science is. Being an engineer is just pretty much the best job I can imagine and I can't wait to see what it has in store for me in the future.

    Hi! I'm currently in foundation studies(pre-university) and I'm going to choose biomedical engineering as my degree. In your self-introduction, you mentioned about that you had had opportunities to grow stem cell cartilage on artificial bones, over see the production of a phase II trial cancer medicine: I'm interested in this field too, is it a part of tissue engineering? I'm confused as I read about growing stem cell or repairing cells are in the field of bioengineering and bioengineering is ...

    Hi Giselle! 
    The best part of engineering is that it is very interdisciplinary. Sure every branch has its specialties but there is overlap. If you get into technicalities Bioengineering has more to do with engineering of biological things (ie Tissue ...
