Steven "After graduating from UNC, I began working in an ultrasound research lab developing new ways to image blood flow using ultrasound, eventually earning a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering. My work in the lab required a lot of Math and Physics knowledge for processing ultrasound signals and writing software to display images, plus a little bit of Chemistry and Biology for understanding what was happening as we took images. During my time at UNC I also had the opportunity to work with Habitat for Humanity, both building homes and tutoring the children who lived in the neighborhoods we were working in..."
