Christie Ricaldi (she/her/hers) is a sophomore from Lima, Peru, studying mechanical engineering with a biomedical concentration. She does undergraduate research in Tamerler Lab, a bio-nano-technology and biomimetic materials lab, working more specifically with solid binding peptides. She is currently the president of the Society of Hispanic Engineers (SPHE) and does volunteering and outreach with the student organization. She is also an engineering ambassador and would be glad to answer any questions about how to get involved in the School of Engineering. Christie has done the Shadowing in Spain program so feel free to ask her about that experience or study abroad in general.
Ask me about: study abroad, undergraduate research, getting involved on campus, volunteering and outreach, and being an international student.
