Linda earned both her Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical Engineering and her Master’s of Science in Materials Science and Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Her undergraduate research thesis centered on the biomedical applications of triboelectric nanogenerators, and her M.S. thesis research was in the bioelectronics field. Linda has also worked as the Bio-Cleanroom Manager and Engineer for Georgia Tech’s Institute for Electronics and Nanotechnology, managing the Bio-Cleanroom facilities and training students on 20+ research tools (SEM, SPR, DSC, etc). Additionally, she has worked as a healthcare software consultant, managing the accounts of more than 50 major hospitals, medical schools, clinics, and research centers in the U.S. and abroad. Outside of work and research, she is very passionate about diversity and inclusion. Linda has mentored several undergraduate women in STEM fields and often volunteers in science outreach events, including as an Invited Capstone Design Judge for her former public boarding school. Recently, she founded Georgia Tech’s first free textbook lending program, organizing campus-wide textbook donations to help students who experience financial difficulty in purchasing course textbooks.
