Sandra is interested in designing a scaffold to support the growth of bone cells and vasculature as a platform for further investigation of in vitro bone physiology. In addition to the in vitro work, Sandra would also like to investigate the ability of the scaffold to function as an alternative to current bone grafts. Prior to graduate school, Sandra worked in a research lab to create a solid electrolyte battery and interned in Switzerland. In her free time Sandra enjoys reading, hiking, yoga, cooking delicious food, and entertaining her puppers.
