What did your Capstone Experience at UMR involve? My Capstone experience at UMR mainly involved two aspects: research and coursework. During my time at Dr. Mattew Urban's lab at Mayo Clinic, I conducted a series mechanical testing of arterial viscosity using an ultrasound approach called Shear wave modulus, which was computationally intensive. Second, to fulfill the course requirement, I enrolled in BIOL4364 Immunology, which was an appreciated decision because I am studying innate immunity and macrophage now.

How did your Capstone experience prepare you for your future in what you’re currently doing? My Capstone experience pushed me to develop computational and programming skills preparing me for my future in bioinformatics.
