Bryan Yeh

Co-President |

Yo! Thanks for checking us out. My name is Bryan, and I’m one of the Co-Presidents for this year! I’m a 3rd year Bioengineering: Bioinformatics major hailing from Muir college, but I originally come from the far far lands of NorCal. When I have free time (heh, what's that), I enjoy playing video games such as overwatch or league, browsing reddit, and watching anime. When I’m not being a loner, I love grabbing food and hanging out in random locations so hit me up. Feel free to message me for absolutely no reason, if only to make a new friend. I also encourage you to come meet me if you have any ideas or concerns about our club. Hopefully I will see you soon!

Alexandra Muise

Co-President |

Hi friends! I'm a 3rd year, Bioengineering: Biotechnology major, and I'm one of the Co-Presidents this year! I'm here to help BMES members grow, and so if you have any ideas or passions you want to share with BMES I would love to hear them! In my spare time, when I'm not working or procrastinating by napping, I also enjoy baking, running, and eating at fun new places. Also, feel free to contact me if you have questions about BMES, worries about college, or want to get off campus to eat real food.

Eti Sinha

Vice-President External |

Hey, what’s up?! I’m a third year Bioengineering: Biotechnology major from Revelle College! As your VP External, I’m here to help you with any professional needs, from resume critiques to connecting you to graduate students. In my free time (if I get out of lab early haha), I like to go to the beach and try Convoy restaurants one at a time. You’ll likely see me being (almost) late to meetings as I speed across campus with my bike. Feel free to contact me for anything!

Prashila Amatya

Vice-President Internal |

Hi there! My name is Prashila and I'll be serving as the Vice-President Internal for BMES this year! I am a 3rd year Bioengineering: Bioengineering major aspiring to become a doctor, so I am always (or should always be) studying, but in my occasional free moments I love to listen to music, watch cute puppy videos, and explore the great outdoors. Feel free to message me or visit my office hours with any questions about getting involved in BMES or just to hang out!

Christopher Um

Vice-President Finance |

Hey everyone my name is Chris and I'm your capitalist of BMES for this year. I like to eat ramen, Chipotle, breakfast burritos, and sushi rolls because I'm a filthy casual who doesn't eat sashimi. When I'm not busy laundering money I just sit on my bed and do nothing so feel free to ask me anything!

Alexandra Kasper

Bioengineering Day Chair |

Hi There! My name is Alexandra, and I am a second year transfer in Bioengineering: Biotechnology. I really enjoy trying new foods, going on hikes, and relaxing on the beach. I also go to Disneyland WAY too much, so if you're interested, please feed my addiction and plan a day trip there with me! And if you have any questions about the transfer experience, BE Day, or life in general, feel free to contact me. I love listening to people’s problems and lending a hand!

Irmak Ipekci

Bioengineering Day Chair |

Hey all! I'm a third-year Bioengineering: Biotechnology major in Warren. I'm also an international student from Turkey, which means I go thorough a 13 hour flight binge watching 6 movies 4 times a year (so many numbers). I really enjoy trying out new food, travelling to new places and getting into TV shows. My dream job would be to become a chef or an astronaut - or an astronaut chef. We should hang out sometime!

Katherine Nguyen

Lab Expo Chair |

Hi all! I'm a 2nd year Bioengineering: Biotechnology major from the far far lands of Revelle college. My favorite color is blue and I absolutely love dogs. I started working in Dr. Chien's lab as a volunteer spring quarter of my freshman year. If you have any questions about anything or you just want a friend to talk to, feel free to talk to me!

Arya Kaul

Lab Expo Chair |

Hey guys, I'm Arya. I'm strongly interested in applying a quantitative mindset to biological research interests. Currently working at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology on smoothing and quality control measures for new advances in chromosome conformation capture. Other interests include scientific policy and the role of mathematics in explaining life’s complexity!

If you have questions about BMES, UCSD student life, or what else there is to do in San Diego, feel free to reach out and message me!

Kathryn Kang

Social Chair |

Hi friends! I'm a third year Bioengineering: Bioengineering student in Muir college. Despite being a San Diego native, I know embarrassingly little about this place, so in my free time, I enjoy finding new restaurants, going to concerts, and wandering with friends. I'm always on the look out for new food/music/book/etc recommendations! Feel free to contact me about BMES, school, or life in general. Cheers!

Don’t hesitate to hit me up if you have any questions or if you just want to hang out!

Yajur Maker

Translational Medicine Day Chair |

As a 4th year Bioengineer, I am focused on translating my research interests into innovative medical technologies. To do this, I focus on creating low cost medical devices in the Engineering World Health organization, work on mimicking bone structure in the McKittrick Biomaterials Lab, and have helped to start Translational Medicine Day to inspire undergraduate students to pursue Translational Medicine. In my free time I also enjoy food and beer. Let's not forget beer.

Reysha Patel

Translational Medicine Day Chair |

Hello! I am a second year Bioengineering: Bioinformatics major from Marshall. As a Translational Medicine Day Co-chair this year, I am excited to display and explore the bridges between medicine and other STEM fields.

John Vincent

Historian |

My name is John Vincent, but I usually go by JV, and I'm a sophomore at UCSD studying bioinformatics. My academic interests are primarily in anything cancer-related, robot-related, and things that can cause explosions of some kind. I'm a swimmer, martial artist, gamer, musician, cook, graphic designer, and sarcasm connoisseur. If you have any questions about BMES, I'll try, but I'm probably better at answering anything Publicity/Design related. I'm traught to meet you, so I hope I can whelm you with my help. Feel the aster!
