Amy Xie, from Bloomingdale, IL, will earn her BS in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern in June 2021. She has been actively involved in biomedical engineering research throughout her undergraduate career. In 2018, she presented her work on immunology engineering for tuberculosis vaccines at the National Biomedical Engineering Society Conference. Her senior capstone project inspired her interest in medical device research, as her team worked on a device to help spinal cord injury inpatients at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab. Her research has been recognized with two separate summer research awards from the McCormick School of Engineering and the Biomedical Engineering Department. Amy has also been active in the extracurricular life of her department, serving as a peer tutor and as vice president of Northwestern’s Biomedical Engineering Society. Amy will continue her research on medical devices as a Master’s student in Mechanical Engineering.
