I studied human biology and eventually I want to go to graduate school probably to study either nutrition, or nursing— something in the health field.
I was lucky enough grew up in the best town in the world, Santa Cruz. (#SorryNotSorry). There really is no place like it. It has mountains, forests, beaches, waves, and my whole huge family — what more could I ask for? Read more »
I’m a graduating senior in the Human Biology program. With this I want to become a physical therapist, ideally involved in neuro-rehabilitation of athletes. Read more »
I am a human biology major with minors in chemistry and sociocultural anthropology. Among many other things, I want to go through a combined MD/PhD program and ultimately become a forensic pathologist. Read more »
I’m a second year graduate student in UCSD’s Bioengineering program, and I mainly work in an orthopedics lab. The three-word answer is: “lower back pain”. Specifically, I use novel MRI techniques to study kinematic and biomechanical changes that occur in the lumbar spine in active duty Marines with varying levels of pathology. I am also working on a method using high strength MRI to make non-invasive measurements of muscle physiology.
My major is bioengineering with a minor in Global Health. Right now I really enjoy being a bioengineering student, triathlete, and a resident advisor. In the future I am looking to combine my experience as an engineering and global health student and work for a successful company that has a healthy contribution to society. In more specific terms I am looking to help create everyday devices that people can use to help themselves live healthy, active lifestyles. Read more »
Well I’m old, so this will be long.

My gym teacher suggested I should hop in the junior high race (2 mile) at the next home meet for the high school cross-country team. I resisted. Again in 8th grade, she suggested I run in the junior high race. Again, I resisted. Read more »
