About Lauren


Bio

I'm a two-time (soon to be three-time) Duke graduate studying biomedical engineering (BME). As a graduate student, I have served as a teaching assistant (TA) for four different BME courses: BME 271A: Signals & Systems, BME 303L: Modern Diagnostic Imaging Systems, BME 590: Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Principles & Sequence Design, and BME 790L: Signal Processing & Applied Mathematics. I have also tutored more than two dozen Duke student athletes in topics ranging from introductory coding (in...

I'm a two-time (soon to be three-time) Duke graduate studying biomedical engineering (BME). As a graduate student, I have served as a teaching assistant (TA) for four different BME courses: BME 271A: Signals & Systems, BME 303L: Modern Diagnostic Imaging Systems, BME 590: Magnetic Resonance Imaging - Principles & Sequence Design, and BME 790L: Signal Processing & Applied Mathematics. I have also tutored more than two dozen Duke student athletes in topics ranging from introductory coding (in MATLAB) to Medical Instrumentation to Music Theory! Working with such a wide range of students in different disciplines has given me a unique viewpoint on what it takes to be a successful educator, and I hope we get the chance to work together!

Math has always been one of my favorite subjects. I love how there are explicit rules that will undoubtedly lead you toward the solution to any problem. I have taken multiple calculus courses in high school and college, including single variable and multivariable calculus, and I continue to use these skills in my current academic ventures.

Furthermore, since biomedical engineering is an amalgamation of electrical and mechanical engineering, I have taken a plethora of courses in these disciplines during my time as an undergraduate and a graduate student at Duke. I have also previously tutored students in ME 221: Structures & Properties of Solids, BME 271/ECE 280: Signals & Systems, and BME 354L: Medical Instrumentation.

Additionally, I am practically fluent in MATLAB (7 years of experience). I have previously tutored 10 undergraduate students in their introductory MATLAB coding courses.

Please reach out if you have any questions, comments or concerns! I look forward to helping you reach your goals, and to hopefully have fun learning along the way!

Public Speaking

I have presented my research at numerous national and local conferences. I have extensive experience preparing for and delivering oral presentations to scientific and non-scientific audiences with different presentation styles. I also have lectured groups of up to 80 college students in a classroom setting, which requires the often overlooked ability to respond to questions and then seamlessly transition back into the lesson.
GRE, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word

Computer

MATLAB,

MATLAB

I have loved MATLAB since I first learned it during my freshman year of undergrad. Fast forward 7 years, and I write MATLAB code almost every day for my classes and research. I have previously tutored numerous undergraduate students in the introductory MATLAB course at Duke.
Sketchup,

Sketchup

I have used Sketchup since 2011 for a variety of applications. These include architectural design, layout planning, 3D modeling for 3D printing, and for planning the dimensions and proportions for woodworking projects. I have taught family members, friends, and student groups how to create their own designs in Sketchup for personal and professional uses.

Biostatistics,

Biostatistics

I am a biomedical engineering PhD candidate who has published numerous peer-reviewed research publications involving an array of statistical techniques. These techniques include t-tests, ANOVAs (traditional and repeated measures), and regression models, as well as various non-parametric tests. I have graduate-level training (through coursework and research projects) in biomedical statistics and its applications.
Electrical Engineering,

Electrical Engineering

My PhD research involves developing signal and image processing techniques for medical image auto-segmentation. I previously served as a teaching assistant (TA) for undergraduate and graduate-level signals and systems courses at Duke University for 3 semesters. I also twice served as a TA for a medical imaging course with image processing components for each modality (x-ray, CT, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine). Finally, I have tutored numerous students in signal processing, medical instrumentation, and introductory circuit analysis and design.

Guitar

I have played the guitar for over 18 years, taking weekly lessons starting in second grade until graduating high school. I have been formally trained in music theory, guitar tablature, ear training, and composition. I have written multiple songs that have been registered with the US Copyright Office.

Great session, highly recomend

Lauren was professional and knowledgeable in her field. We worked out an issue that had been trumping me for a week, and in one short session, she was able to get me to where I needed to go.

great teacher

She’s helped me and solved the problem I advise anyone to teaching him. She has a good knowledge about biomechanics and diagnosis instrumentation Thanks Lauren

Understanding, Patient, knows her stuff!

Laurens was able to very quickly understand what I needed and helped me understand better as well! She took unfamiliar homework assignments in a very niche and high level class and was able to teach me through the steps! She is a Matlab genius.
