Katie Rowley Grant
Following summer internships at NIST and Medtronic, I went on to earn a PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, MN - 2005). My main areas of study included medical imaging modalities, medical device technologies, cardiovascular- and neuro- physiology. In 2005 I was awarded a great opportunity in the form of a research fellowship from the Director of Central Intelligence, which has now become the Intelligence Community post-doctoral research program (www.icpostdoc.org). Now, I continue to do biomedical engineering development work at the Mayo Clinic, with an emphasis in microelectronics. As much as I have tried to avoid it, I have actually put my electronics and EM classes to good use! I have very fond memories of the Physics department at Miami and all the time I spent with my classmates. Lastly, I was married in early 2007 and we are expecting our first child in February 2009!
"The Miami physics department created a smaller community within the larger university setting that supplied a much more personal college experience; providing more opportunities and more one-on-one interactions with both the faculty and students alike…several with whom I have kept in touch with over the years."
