“While much of my work during my undergraduate career at WPI focused on Grand Challenge themes related to the healthcare field, it was the program’s yearning to help students view problems and solutions through many different perspectives, rather than solely a technical angle, that intrigued me. Through GCSP, I had the opportunity to reflect on the project work I completed through academics, extra-curricular activities, and internship experiences and how multiple perspectives were crucial to developing a solution. Today, I continue to work in an collaborative environment at Olympus Surgical Technologies America where I am a part of a rotational development program working with various departments to develop medical devices.”
