Humans of Bioengineering: Adam Anderson

I’m Adam and I am in Dr. Ruikang (Ricky) Wang’s lab. The lab does OCT (optical coherence tomography) research. The goal of my  capstone is to design an image processing tool for the lab. After I graduate, I am going for a Ph.D at Purdue University because I want the freedom that a Ph.D. offers to choose what I research. I might go into academia afterwards.

Deok-Ho Kim and team awarded Human Frontier Science Program Research Grant

The international research team will investigate the dynamics of collective cell migration on curved surfaces. They aim to understand the mechanistic details of organism development and tissue repair, which could inform approaches in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

Humans of Bioengineering: Kim Hua

I’m Kim, and I’m in the GRID/Neural Systems lab. My project is about restoring tactile feedback through electrocorticography grids (ECoG) via the somatosensory cortex, or more simply put, how to make people feel again. After graduation, I’ll be traveling in Europe just for fun. I think this will be the last time I’ll get to travel for an extended period without having to worry about school or jobs. Afterwards, I’ll be working in ultrasound systems at Philips as a software engineer.
