Emily Ray


Summer Undergraduate Research Assistant

I am a sophomore studying Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis joining the Viventi Lab for the summer. After working in libraries in rural Zambia, my focus within engineering shifted to providing accessible medical devices to power the developing world. I am particularly interested in biomechanics, orthopedic engineering, and powering devices through brain-computer interfaces. In the Viventi Lab, I am working on behavioral training in rats to study the auditory cortex’s response to stimulation and frequency-specific discretion. Outside of the lab I am an active member of Wash U's Engineers Without Borders chapter and enjoy exploring the terrain on both sides of the Mississippi.
