Quinn Boser, B.Sc. (M.Sc. Student)

Quinn graduated with a BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Biomedical Option in spring 2015, and is currently working towards an MSc in Biomedical Engineering under the supervision of Dr. Jacqueline Hebert. Before beginning her MSc program in the fall of 2016, Quinn worked for a year as a research assistant with Dr. Hebert and a team of interdisciplinary researchers on the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Hand Proprioception and Touch Interfaces (HAPTIX) project. Quinn also participated in research throughout her bachelor’s degree, and first became interesting in rehabilitation technology and assistive devices while working as an undergraduate researcher under Dr. Albert Vette at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital.
