Amanda received her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering from Washington University in St. Louis and worked in the Plastic Surgery Research Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital for 4 years before returning to graduate school. In her graduate research, Amanda is particularly interested in combining experimental tissue engineering work with finite element modeling to predict and assess the outcomes of therapies for musculoskeletal injuries. Outside the lab, Amanda enjoys baking whoopie pies, playing basketball, and supporting all things Boston. Go Pats!
