Spring 2023 Undergraduate Teaching Assistants
Carol Lu is a sophomore studying Biomedical Engineering, with a concentration in Biological Devices, and is a student in the Barrett Honors College and Grand Challenges Scholars program. Her vision is to harness biopolymer- and cell-based tools for targeted medicine delivery for chronic diseases, but also cares deeply about developing systematic engineering solutions to many pressing human needs. She can be found at Mayo Clinic (Scottsdale) doing research to these ends.
Carol is the lead for the EPICS Vietnam Shrimp Farming Mechanical team, helping to create an IoT system that monitors multiple water quality factors and integrates them in a way accessible to small-scale farmers to prevent loss of shrimp to disease and environmental damage from water mismanagement. As an EPICS UGTA, she is delighted to continue growing in practical, human-centered project design alongside all other students in this marvelous program.
Omkaar Shenoy is a Sophomore majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Statistics. He was a part of the MemoryGlass project in EPICS, and overlooked the frontend development of the web application. He is also part of the Grand Challenge Scholars Program and Fulton Ambassadors where he works to strengthen his own engineering skills as well as help others. In his free time, he works at the Sun Devil Fitness Center and enjoys wasting time online watching new shows. Currently, as a UGTA for EPICS, he hopes to help students in the program make tangible progress on their projects and contribute more to the community.
Shreyas Kotamraju is a Freshman majoring in Computer Science at the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Currently in his second semester, he is passionate about coding and designed the app wireframes for the Mental Health Mobile Games group last semester, giving him experience of how EPICS works. Being on the student council during high school, Shreyas mentored deputy members and assisted teachers. He is not only prepared, but excited to serve as a UGTA this spring.
At Arizona State University, Lilli Offenberger is a student studying biomedical engineering (BME) in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. She was drawn to BME due to the mix of the medical and engineering field combined into one. Her ultimate goal is to create 3D printed artificial organs and organ parts to combat the growing issue of people dying waiting for an organ transplant. Lilli has been a part of the Fosters AZ Project and is currently the team lead of Rewired Bionics within the EPICS program. She has continued to delve into the ASU community through various clubs such as SASE, GCSP, EPIC Movement, and other such clubs. One of her main objectives is to help those in her community thrive via volunteering with children, being a part of EPICS, and improving current health solutions to better society.
