=10ptI'm a bit of an odd mix. Graduated in public relations but somehow got a job in clinical research and trial management. I work in human subject protection, but have been teaching myself biotech engineering for the last year. I found out I have a knack for biology and engineering and have been bettering my knowledge ever since. I'm also a grad student at Johns Hopkins University!
While I would kill to work full-time on cybernetic development, the jobs for it sadly aren't here in the DC area :( So, I've instead focused on completing my literature review on the potential of cybernetic development using experimental materials in a transdisciplinary setting. Additionally, I am designing a more...biomimetic prosthesis using my biology and materials knowledge. It would be built to mimic the biological arm much closer, both in movement and communication (via integration with neuron bundles). I have something that I think might work, but it requires more research before I feel comfortable talking about it more. I definitely need a mentor or opinions as I design this thing, that's for sure!
I'm glad to be here!
