Ph.D. Candidate, Mechanical Engineering
Clark Center, Room S341
I’m from Houston, TX with roots in Trinidad and Nigeria. Outside of research I enjoy hosting social events (ie. Pina Coladas and Painting, Kayaking the Lagoon, Rejuvenation and Rooftop Gardens, and Churros, Cannoli, and Comedy, etc), engaging in local outreach initiatives, and encouraging others to be the healthiest version of themselves emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
I am interested in developing technologies that help humans live healthier lives. Currently I am developing a cellphone-based diagnostic tool for sensory neuropathy. If effective, this research will lead to a clinical test for sensory function that can be conducted at home. It could also serve as a basis for future diagnostic research using smartphone technology.
