In 2011 I graduated magna cum laude from Stony Brook University with a B.E. in biomedical engineering. I am currently a graduate research assistant in the Center for Injury Biomechanics, where our lab focuses on automotive safety. My research primarily involves event data recorders, but I have cultivated skills mining and creating large databases. My previous research was in musculoskeletal biomechanics, examining the effect of high fat diet on bone quality. I anticipate graduating in 2015 with a dissertation titled, "The Potential of Event Data Recorders to Improve Impact Injury Assessment in Real World Crashes"
