  • Visiting Student

B.Sc. Mechanical Engineering,Technical University of Munich

Lisa-Marie received her Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University of Munich, where she developed her interest in medical devices and materials. She completed her bachelor's degree with her final project, in which she investigated the cytotoxicity and photocatalytic effect of titaniumdioxide-polyetheretherketone-compounds. During her master studies at TUM she completed a research project at the Chair of Medical Materials and Implants on the influence of different surface active additives on the hemocompatibility of polyethylene. She then spent a semester abroad at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden, where she focused on materials science for medical applications. She also worked as a research assistant at the Institute of Micro Technology and Medical Device Technology at TUM, where she contributed to the development and integration of ECG sensors in personalized clothing. Lisa-Marie joined the TTDD to conduct research for her master's thesis. Her research focuses on minimally invasive cardiac defect correction and repair using 3D printing of hydrogels. Outside the lab, she enjoys climbing and exploring the area in and around Boston.
