Bachelor of Science, Biomedical Engineering, Brown University, 2013
Courtney’s interest in bioengineering centers around a desire to understand the mechanisms underlying musculoskeletal disease and to optimize engineering tools for detection and prevention. During her undergraduate at Brown University, Courtney completed an honors thesis on cartilage tissue engineering with Dr. Bahar Bilgen. She has additionally spent two summers researching under Dr. P. Jack Hoopes at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, resulting in several presentations and publications through SPIE. Courtney was named a Tau Beta Pi Scholar in 2012 and a Fellow in 2013. Courtney started her Ph.D. in the UC Berkeley – UCSF Graduate Program in Bioengineering in 2014 and joined the Alliston lab in May 2015. Her current work involves studying the role of osteocytes in mechanosensitive bone remodeling. Outside of coursework and research, Courtney enjoys volunteering with local organizations to mentor undergraduate students and to teach in elementary school classrooms.
