Nelson Euceda is a First-Generation, Latino college student and a Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) Scholar pursuing an MEng degree in Bioengineering. In 2019, he graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry and a B.S. in Mathematics from the State University of New York (SUNY) Old Westbury. His academic career included work as an undergraduate research associate in a lab where he developed strong wet lab techniques and managed protocols for HPLC, steady-state photolysis, and liposome preparation. Following this, Nelson worked as a Production Planner and, subsequently, a Research Coordinator in a chemical manufacturing company, where he gained expertise in product design, optimization, and improving manufacturing systems. Nelson hopes to deepen his knowledge on medical devices from design to manufacturing to user interaction. In his free time, he enjoys exploring the Bay Area and meeting new people, playing basketball, volleyball, or spike ball, and cooking new recipes.
