My expertise is biomaterials – nanoparticles for molecular imaging, cancer profiling, and drug delivery. Since 2013, I have been focusing on engineering education practice and research. Current and past NSF- and internally-funded research projects are listed here.
My work encompasses improving undergraduate education in biomedical and electrical engineering, creating opportunities for students to globalize their engineering degrees, and mentoring graduate students in teaching. In addition, I have mentored numerous student entrepreneurial teams to success. Currently, I am pursuing my research interests in convergence in engineering education, global engineering education, and social issues in STEM research and teaching.
Having grown up in Australia, Canada, Korea, and Germany, I acquired three languages and am still figuring out which culture I identify with the most. When I am settled down between moving internationally or interstate, I read, cook, practice Pilates, run marathons, play the piano, and work on speeches in my Toastmasters Club.
