Peer Mentor: Jason Castañeda
Faculty Mentor: Dr. Elain Fu
I’m originally from San Jose, California. I grew up spending my time between the Bay Area with my father and the Central Valley with my mother. I chose to come to OSU for the amazing research opportunities in the STEM fields. I am majoring in Bioengineering and I hope to work on research involving disease detection and diffusion of samples across a porous membrane. My career goals include: being the best engineer I can be, representing a positive image for all engineers, and continuing the development of practices and techniques for disease detection. My favorite thing about OSU is that there is always someone around who is willing to help you succeed.
