Biography
I just started the PhD Program in Biomedical Engineering at University of Texas at Dallas in August 2015, where I am a Research Assistant in the Ware Lab. I am currently working with modifying liquid crystals for biomedical applications. I graduated from Georgia Tech in December 2014 with a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a minor in Biology. While I was at Georgia Tech and following my graduation, I worked at Medshape, a medical device company that specializes in shape-memory soft tissue fixation devices. I worked extensively in Research & Development and worked in Operations as well.

    I am a sophomore at the University of Utah and am majoring in biomedical engineering but hesitant to stay with it. So far I have liked my classes but have not taken too many of the major classes to be sure. I really enjoy math and science a lot and like the idea of applying this knowledge in the health care industry but would not consider myself a "problem solver" or "creative". I am concerned that once I get my degree I won't enjoy my job. I am not sure if I would like research because it ...

    Hi, My name is Jessica. I'm currently in year 11, 15 years old. I'm interested in studying engineering later in university but I'm just not sure whether it's the right choice. Frankly, I'm not the best in maths and science. Although I find maths really fun and interesting, I don't have all A's for it like I do with other subjects such as English or Classical Studies. I also do not enjoy science that much, although I have been getting A's for it. I've been trying to figure out what I should ...
