I am a bioengineering PhD currently working as a post-doctoral research fellow in the Department of Neurology at the University of Utah, where I design neurosurgical approaches for treating movement disorders. I was sort of fast until I put running on the back burner at the end of grad school and am trying to get sort of fast again now.
