Jason graduated from Colorado State University in 2018 with a BS in Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. His interest is in 3D printer development and integration for biomedical applications. Jason is developing a replacement for the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disc intended to stabilize the joint after disc resection. To accomplish this, Jason has designed and built 3D printers for stereolithography and melt electrowriting which allow for the complex geometry and mechanical environment of the TMJ disc to be replicated. This, paired with finite element modeling of the TMJ will advance implant development in a preclinical (Ovine) models.
In addition to his work as a PhD student, Jason has been involved at CSU in research, as a tutor, and as a Presidential Ambassador. He enjoys climbing in the gym and outside, board games and home renovations.
