After years spent watching her brother struggle with health problems and permanent damage from subsequent surgeries, Lindsie Jeffries became invested in human health and interested in developing better health care technologies. She hopes to develop ways to improve everyday life for those with health challenges and disabilities.
She is also interested in space sciences and served as an intern at the Johnson Space Center in the summer of 2016. During this project, Jeffries worked on the mechanical aspects of the telescopes and particularly enjoyed the design process.
Seeing things her team discussed and modeled in software come to life as physical, machined parts was one of the most rewarding aspects of the project.
After graduation, Jeffries will attend graduate school in Stanford University’s Mechanical Engineering Department, with a concentration on biomechanics.
