Hello! I am a 3rd year biomedical engineering student at the University of British Columbia, specializing in biomedical signals and systems. I aspire to work in the robotics field, and would love to explore the role of robotics in healthcare technology.
As an undergraduate research assistant, I helped design MATLAB scripts for behavioural and fiber photometry striatal neuron signal analysis of Huntington and wildtype mice models performing motor skill tasks. This helped identify meaningful differences and correlations between the wildtype and huntington mice models.
At UBC Open Robotics, I am an electrical engineer helping to design the electrical portion of the arm component of the team’s flagship robotic project. We are currently working on designing the PCBs which will power and control the motors in the arm, as well as the firmware with which the software subteam can use to program the arm.
As a member of UBC BIOMOD, I have been helping conduct background research and writing wetlab experimental procedures for the design of our novel DNA origami nano-hinge. Due to limitations from COVID-19 regulations, I have not yet had the opportunity to work directly in the lab.
