Mechanical Engineering BS/MS, 2013
Nick proposes to work at the University of Ulm on a project to characterize the mechanical properties of fracture fixation devices in order to directly compare research results from various fracture healing studies. This project will allow for optimization of fracture fixation devices and ultimately better care for those who suffer a bone fracture.
Originally from Chamblee, GA, Nick studied abroad in the UK while at Drexel and has completed two coops at Synthes, a medical device company. There, he worked alongside Swiss and German engineers and surgeons, which inspired his desire to research overseas. Nick was also a Hess Undergraduate Research Scholar (adv. Dr. Sorin Siegler).
