I am interested in fields of mechanobiology, biohybrid prosthetics, biophysics, Jungian psychology, and philosophy.
Recently in association with Laidlaw;
In Cornell University (N.Y, U.S.A.) I worked on curating an art book on biomechanics for charity to raise awareness in this field of science.
And in Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), we worked on developing a microphysiological model of the osteocytic network in the bone that can be used to better understand the (patho)physiology of bone using Direct Laser Writing technology using MLO-Y4 cell culture.
On the side;
In ETH Zürich (Switzerland), I was working on understanding bio-hybrid muscle actuators using C2C12 cell culture literature review.
At DogPatch Labs's Patch (Dublin, Ireland) I was experimenting with creating an experimental start-up company to help amputees get affordable prosthetics.
On the (other) side;
I like to dance, write, and read anything I get my hands on; be it music, poetry, or even shampoo bottles.
Please feel free to contact me here or on LinkedIn for any discussions regarding the aforementioned topics!
My name is Aleksandra and I am a first-year undergraduate Medical Sciences student at University College London. My research this summer focuses on understanding the fitness landscape of aging tissue to help the impact of mutated cells on cancer development.
Apart from my biomedical interests, I really enjoy tennis and ballet. I will be spending the whole July learning French at Politics at SciencesPo Paris so if you're around I'd more than happy to connect!
