Peer Advisors

As your Peer Advisors, we are here to help you succeed.  We are all current students in the program, and so are able to understand the unique challenges you face as a Biomedical Engineering student. Whether you are an …upperclassman wondering how to get connected with internships and research …an underclassman trying to figure out how to balance all of your classes …or a prospective student wondering what all of the excitement in Biomedical Engineering is about we are here to answer your questions.  Peer Advisors can be reached during regular office hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) by stopping by (ECG 346), calling (480-965-5485), or emailing ( the Advising Office.

My interests lie in rehabilitation/neural engineering, neural plasticity, prostheses and exoskeletons. After graduating with my undergraduate degree in BME from ASU, I joined the Neuromuscular Control and Human Robotics Laboratory over the summer ran by Dr. Lee in the Mechanical Engineering department where I have assisted in data collection for a walking study and am currently beginning work on my applied project, which I anticipate finishing in the Spring 2017 semester. In my spare time I enjoy volunteering with Project C.U.R.E., hiking around Arizona, and checking out new coffee shops.  [/acc_item][acc_item title=”Misha”]I’m a senior, balancing my capstone project, my honors thesis and some “for fun” classes too. At ASU, I’ve been involved with EPICS, study abroad, Barrett, a number of student organizations, and residence life. I have interned at Project CURE and at W.L. Gore and Associates. Feel free to ask me about anything and everything I have experienced! In my spare time, I enjoy – Well, who am I kidding? I have no spare time.Hall_Mikaela_5005b [/acc_item] [/accordion]
