My Work Experience

Where I've interned and worked during my career.

Seven Hills Foundation | Aug 2022 - Present

Assistive Technology Specialist

I prescribe assistive technology to individuals under the care of Seven Hills Foundation, as well as the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services. I also provide implementation plans and conduct trainings on the technology to ensure it is used to its full capacity. Outside prescribing assistive technology, I mentor UMass Lowell engineering students through the completion of their senior capstone projects. I also mentor Mass Academy students from WPI. Lastly, I am developing outcome measure tools to improve the service delivery process.

Boston University | May 2019 - Aug 2019

Research Assistant

In the Summer of 2019, I started working in a Biomedical Engineering Lab at Boston University. There, I was able to learn basic skills on maintaining cancer cells and understanding how to analyze them. During this internship, I was tasked with two projects. The first project consisted of determining whether the growth rate of cancer cells was linear or exponential. After conducting this experiment more than seven times with 90 tumors in each experiment, we were able to determine a linear growth rate of tumors. The procedure for analyzing the growth rate required counting the number of cells inside a breast cancer cell one, three, and ten days after being grown. In order to count the cells of each tumor, we would first wash out the cell media of the tumor three times, then use a micropipette to break up the tumor. Afterwards, we injected the cells with trypan blue so that the dead cells would absorb the color blue and the living cells would shine bright under a microscope. We took and took a small sample out of each well and counted the amount of living cells and used that number to calculate how many cells were inside the whole tumor. The second project consisted of determining which molecule is best to cross- link collagen with to prevent cancer metastasis. Cancer cells often escape from tumors, so cross-linking the collagen around cancer cells can prevent cancer cells from escaping into the blood stream. My job was to operate a rheometer that would test collagen cross-linked with different molecules, and analyze which molecule determined the strongest stiffness. After conducting tests of collagen cross-linked with ribose and glutaraldehyde at 0mM, 100mM, and 200mM concentration, we were able to determine that glutaraldehyde had a stronger stiffness and therefore was better at preventing cancer metastasis.
