Research Highlight

Rachel Zarin ’20, who double majored in applied physics and health and exercise science, completed a summer research project in 2019 with funding from the Dr. John Martin Summer Science Research Institute. For the project, Zarin created a 3-D printed prosthetic arm to which she attached motors and sensors to keep the hand level as it moves. After graduation, she went on to receive her master of science in engineering in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania and now works as a biomedical technology developer.
