B.S. Biomedical Engineering, Columbia University
M.D., Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Sophie recieved her B.S. in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Imaging from Columbia University. During her undergraduate studies, she spent time working at the Food and Drug Administration in the Center for Devices and Radiological Health. Her undergraduate research in Dr. Sam Sia's lab was focused on investigating the roles of chemotactic and mechanotactic cues in driving angiogenesis. She received her M.D. from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore and is currently a vascular surgery resident at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. At TTDD, Sophie is focused on designing a novel endovascular method to deliver siRNA during peripheral vascular interventions; she has also been involved in multiple preclinical studies of therapeutic devices. She is broadly interested in surgical innovation and novel medical devices for treatment of vascular diseases. Outside of the lab, Sophie's interests include gardening, tennis, and any and all food-related activities.
