I will be graduating Magna Cum Laude in the fall of 2015 with B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Biomedical Engineering.  During my last year at Boise State University, I have enjoyed working as a research assistant in the Northwest Tissue Mechanics Laboratory under Dr. Trevor Lujan.  My most recent work focuses on the effects of wear on polyethylene hip replacement liners for canines.  I have successfully finished my four and half years at Boise State University receiving Deans List every semester and being inducted into The Engineering Honors Society, Tau Beta Pi.  Outside of studying, I enjoy training in MMA, cooking, and playing with my dog.  After graduation, I will be pursuing a M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at Boise State University and hope to eventually make a difference in the treatment of debilitating sports injuries.
