I Am

biomedical engineer. adventure seeker. life enthusiast.

«About Me»

Hello, and welcome to my website! My name is Chandler Woo and I am a biomedical engineer from Pasadena, California. I recently graduated from the University of Rochester with a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. I have taken my skillsets and am now in the Global Medical Innovation program at Rice University, where I will earn my Masters Degree of Bioengineering in May 2018. Creating new experiences is how I have lived my life. You may find me backpacking in the backcountry of New Mexico, taking a polar plunge in the icy waters of Alaska, or simply exploring the local food markets in Costa Rica. I have found a deep-rooted passion for medical devices, where I hope to enhance the lives of others through the wonders of engineering and science. Feel free to browse through the website and be sure to contact me if you have any further questions!
