I attended Brigham Young University from 2016 – 2023, graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering. During that time, I was able to participate in three internships designing large mechanical systems, as well as help on three different research projects that involved topics such as compliant mechanisms, back pain diagnostics, and lumbar fusion.
I currently help Dr. Ben Ellis develop and analyze FE models of the cervical spine to determine differences in forces and pressure when vertebrae are fused.
