Mentor: Dr. Karanian
Project: Correlating stent and vessel interaction
Mentorship Self Evaluation
This quarter I have directed my focus towards further development and research of my thesis on stent-vessel interaction and emerging scanning technology. Especially focusing on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in particular, I have continued to further my knowledge of current implantation techniques and the various in-vivo applications of novel scanning modalities. Although I have had trouble in finding transportation to my mentor site, communication via email has been sufficient in communicating my progress with Dr. Karanian. I have completed all the necessary requirements needed to attain an A and have worked with diligence and attentiveness throughout the quarter.
