Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering, Stanford University, 2020
Ashley Westerfield is a PhD student in the Health Sciences and Technology department at MIT. She is also a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow and an Alfred P. Sloan 2020-21 Scholar. Ashley received a Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering from Stanford University, where her research focused on developing new materials for 3D bioprinting. While she has not yet joined a lab, her research interests lie in medical devices, drug delivery, and tissue engineering. Recognizing the importance of mentorship at all stages of academia, especially for underrepresented minorities in STEM like herself, Ashley hopes to serve as a mentor for those with diverse backgrounds and perspectives during time as a PhD student.
