Materials Engineering, Purdue
Class of 2014
I am originally from New Palestine, Indiana (East of
Indianapolis). I chose materials engineering because I enjoy learning about
new technological advancements in the field of materials to both enhance
performance of products and often reduce costs. I plan to enter the orthopedic
industry after school to specialize in orthopedic and prosthetic design.
Currently I am doing research under Professor Erk on surface characterization
of thin film polymers by atomic force microscopy.
