What challenges did he face?
- Dhevan found the most difficult component of the program to be writing an academic-level, high-quality review paper. He needed help in particular with analytically organizing and discussing data, forming his opinion, and critically discussing and concluding on the chosen issue rather than simply summarizing the current literature.
The mentor works at Brown University as an Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering. She is secretary of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society – Providence Section, Editorial Board Member of Science Progress (Sage Publishing) and peer review panelist for the American Heart Association Bioengineering-Basic Science (BSc3) group.
How did our program help him?
- He was able to acquire some practical experience in the field of biomedical engineering.
- The mentorship program, when combined with his own achievements and hard work, helped him stand out and gain acceptance to a few top universities.
