Andrea "Blue" Martin is currently a PhD candidate in Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. Her current research aims to reduce the parasite load in patients with severe malaria using a continuous, high throughput dialysis-like device that uses strong permanent magnets to remove infected red blood cells from the patient. She received her Bachelors of Science in Bioengineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012 with a minor in Mechanical Engineering. Her interests include medical device design and manufacturing, machining techniques, rheology, and magnetophoretic devices.
