Amanda LeMatty

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.
