Area of Expertise:
Biomedical Engineering , Visocelastic Materials , Optics
Profile Summary

Alexa Hudnut is a third year PhD student studying Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California under the advisement of Professor Andrea Armani. She is working to create tools that will improve how patients experience cancer treatment. She is currently developing a wide array of platforms that vary drastically in their applications, yet all use fundamentals of optics and microfabrication as their scientific foundation. In a field where overworked doctors are often disconnected from the complex circumstances of their patients, she hopes to act as a bridge to refocus the conversation onto areas critical to patient well-being.
