About me:
Currently working on a Master's degree in BME; research assistant under Dr. Pfister studying the effects of traumatic brain injury on cortical neurons and dorsal root ganglion.

Why I chose to attend NJIT:
NJIT has an excellent program for biomedical engineering that gave me many opportunities to advance academically as well as in my focus of research.

What I like best about NJIT:
The close nature of the biomedical engineering department that has allowed me to have many opportunities to learn more outside of the classroom, as well as having the support of the staff and faculty members.

My goals for after I graduate:
Continue on to PhD degree and continuing research.

My advice to prospective students interested in Biomedical Engineering at NJIT:
Freshman year is almost always the hardest for BME students so be prepared to work hard; don't be discouraged if you don't do as well as you had hoped your first year. Feel free to contact me or any of the other ambassadors for help with classes. And if you put your best foot forward and work as hard as you can, your professors will be more than willing to work with you.
