Meet Our Current Lab Fellows
My name is Amanda LeMatty, and I’m a first-year biomedical engineering PhD student from Charleston, South Carolina. My research focus is global health innovation which is what led me to the University of Utah and the Center for Medical Innovation. Over the course of my PhD, I’ll be working to develop a non-invasive hemoglobin monitor to reduce the global burden of anemia.
Kolja Klug, a current exchange student from the University of Heidelberg in Germany, works as Engineering Lab Fellow at CMI. He studies Biomedical Engineering with an emphasis on device innovation and clinical problem-solving. He supports the design, construction, and 3D printing of prototyping projects.
Outside school and lab, Kolja enjoys road biking, skiing, climbing, good food, and exploring the world.
Marina Garcia Guijarro
I'm a 3rd-year Biomedical Engineering student from Universidad Carlos III in Madrid, Spain. I am involved with the design and prototyping of medical devices that can be directly applied to solve relevant problems in the medical field. My time at the CMI is helping me enhance my experience at the University of Utah, by allowing me to learn more about real-world engineering applications and the direct impact of technology in health care.
