BDC 2024 Webinar: Developing Sustainable Biomaterials in Academia

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Biomaterials have been used to revolutionize industries and practices across biodesign, providing sustainable alternatives to commonly existing materials used today. As research and development of biomaterials is rapidly advancing, biodesigners are seeking different ways of engaging with biomaterials through art, design, and experimentation in a range of settings. How can biodesigners forge their own path in this exciting area?

Join BDC alum Fiona Bell, an interdisciplinary engineer, biomaterial researcher, and postdoctoral fellow at the University of New Mexico, as she shares her experience in biomaterial research and academia.


April 3rd from 12:00 PM ET - 1:00 PM ET

Webinar Link: Included in RSVP confirmation and shared the day before/morning of the event

About the Speaker

Fiona Bell is a postdoctoral researcher in the Hand and Machine Lab at the University of New Mexico, where she designs, develops, and studies biologically-based materials and technologies that promote ecological care and sustainability. With a PhD in Creative Technology and Design from the University of Colorado Boulder (2023) and a BSc in Mechanical Engineering from Santa Clara University (2019), her research happens at the intersection of biodesign, material science, and human-computer interaction.
