Jordan Gamble is a 2019-2023 Self Graduate Fellow pursuing a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at the University of Kansas. She received a B.S. (2019) in mechanical engineering with a concentration in control, instrumentation and robotics and a minor in applied international studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her undergraduate work focused mainly on the design and implementation of robotics systems. For her Ph.D., she aims to apply this work towards product design within the biomedical technology sector. Gamble is currently doing preliminary work on bone regeneration techniques using external mechanical and electrical stimuli. More specifically, she is working on designing a bioreactor system to house 3D cell scaffolds and supply mechanically synced electrical stimulation for improved tissue growth. Gamble is passionate about creating products that improve patient care and translating these technologies across national borders.
