Annie started her PhD at Carnegie Mellon University during the Fall of 2019. She attended Lehigh University for her undergraduate studies, where she graduated in S2019 with B.S. in Bioengineering with High Honors. During her time at Lehigh, she was an Iacocca Scholar and a Clare Booth Luce Scholar. As an Iacocca Scholar, Annie was able to conduct fully-funded research abroad, during the Summer of 2017, at the National University of Ireland in Galway, in the Lab of Dr. Laoise McNamara. In 2018, she was awarded the Clare Booth Luce Scholarship, which granted her funding to conduct research at Lehigh in The Chow Lab, run by Dr. Lesley Chow. Annie is now a PhD student in Dr. Adam Feinberg’s Lab, where she is currently conducting work on using FRESH bioprinting to create scaffolds to regenerate skeletal muscle after volumetric muscle loss injuries. In the spring of 2021, Annie was awarded a fellowship through the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP).
