We are a team of Biomedical Engineering Masters students in the CBID program at Johns Hopkins University.
Ryan is from Westford, Massachusetts and went to Tufts University for his undergraduate degrees in biomedical and mechanical engineering. He is interested in the development of medical devices for low resource settings, and is excited to put this into practice while in Uganda. Ryan loves to be outside and is an avid rower and cross-country skier!
Brielle is from Pequannock, NJ and went to Bucknell University to study biomedical engineering for her undergraduate degree. She is passionate about traveling, helping others, and developing innovative medical devices and is excited to combine her interests to help neonates in Uganda. Brielle loves outdoor activities including hiking, surfing, and skiing!
Kaveri is from Arizona and studied Bioengineering at UCLA where she worked on biomedical research and device design. She is excited to enter into the global innovation and entrepreneurial space and improve lives with innovation. Kaveri also directed an urban dance team during her time at UCLA!
Hannah grew up in Toronto, Canada and studied Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo. She joined CBID at Johns Hopkins because of the program’s focus on entrepreneurship and the opportunity to gain direct field experience. She loves road trips; her favourite so far was driving around Baja California Sur.
Sneha grew up in Northern California and studied Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine. She spent time in the medical device industry as a product manager and is looking forward to entering the global health space.
Grace is from upstate New York and completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Rochester. She majored in biomedical engineering with a concentration in biosignals and systems. She was a member of Engineers Without Borders and is passionate about increasing access to healthcare. She plays classical piano and loves to hike!
“The Johns Hopkins Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID), within the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering, offers a one-year MSE degree program called the David E. Swirnow Master’s Program in Bioengineering Innovation and Design. Students choose CBID for the opportunity to work with the world’s best clinicians one-on-one and engage in disruptive innovation to improve patient care around the globe.”
