Research Outline

Capstone Project “Fabrication and Characterization of Gelatin and Metamucil Ultrasound Phantoms” 

  • Investigated the use of gelatin and Metamucil to create a cheap, efficient ultrasound phantom for training purposes.
  • Developed a method to test the strength and durability of samples via Rheology, TGA, and Ultrasound.
  • Incorporated tumor and vein mimics into phantom samples that imaged under ultrasound.
  • Learned basic ultrasound imaging techniques

Final Report (2)

Undergraduate Research “Fabrication of polymer tube peripheral nerve conduit device” (May – December 2017)

–           Assisted in improving on a dip drying technique for peripheral nerve conduits

–           Analyzed the porosity, thickness, and suture retention of the conduits

Nerve Conduit Abstract

Undergraduate Research “Polyanhydride Nanoparticles for Drug Release” (July -August 2016)

  • Investigated the degradation of (p-carboxyphenoxy) propane-co-sebacic acid nanoparticles for controlled delivery of the aCT 1 peptide for use on glioblastomas in canines.
  • Created a CPP polymer using an experimental double emulsion process.
  • Analyzed data found from NMR and DLS about the chemical composition of polymers created in house.
  • Prepared several oral presentations and a final report

Final Paper

Mitral Valve Sewing Ring

Using 3D slicer software I was able to segment the mitral valve of the heart. Using this segment I created a personalized mitral valve sewing to aid in heart repair.
