Nicole earned a B.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering with a concentration in bioengineering from Kettering University (Flint, MI, USA) in 2012. The experiential learning program at Kettering allowed Nicole to work as a research assistant at Henry Ford Hospital’s Bone and Joint Center (Detroit, MI, USA) for 2.5 years where she developed a love of research. Nicole went on to earn her PhD in bioengineering from Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO, USA) in 2018. There she gained experience working as a graduate teaching assistant for computer aided engineering, biomedical engineering capstone design, and biomedical engineering introductory classes. She also served as a Graduate Teaching Fellow for the College of Engineering during the 2016/2017 academic year. Nicole is currently a instructional post-doctoral fellow in the Transforming Engineering Education Laboratory within the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. Through this fellowship, she is spending the 2019/2020 academic year at Shantou University (Guangdong Province, China) teaching and assisting in curriculum development. Her engineering education interests include active learning, student perceptions of engineering disciplines, and program accreditation.
