Officers 2012-2013

President: Jason PuiJason Pui

Hey all!

I’m an aspiring biomedical engineer from Kuching, Malaysia. I transferred to BU from Seattle Central Community College during my sophomore year. It was at Seattle Central that I decided to make the switch from biochemistry to biomedical engineering — one of the best decisions of my life! I aspire to work in the medical device industry upon graduation, and possibly further my education in the future.  I love nachos from Sunset Cantina and onion rings from Uburger. While I’m not eating, I love to hike, ski, travel and sleep.

Life is an equation. You can model everything if you make enough assumptions.

Hi guys! I’m from North Reading, Massachusetts. My interests in engineering and medicine come from my parents (my dad got his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from BU and my mom is a nurse). Biomedical engineering was an obvious choice for me! I’m currently enrolled in the ENGMEDIC program but I’m not sure yet what kind of medicine I’d like to practice. I’ll probably end up working with kids because they’re so fun!

In my free time I like to hang out with my family and friends, swim, and play my guitar! I also love sushi, blueberries, Pokemon, and dark chocolate.

Genius is nothing more nor less than childhood recovered at will. - Charles Baudelaire

Secretary: Alberto PurwadaAlberto Purwada

Hi all! I came all the way from Indonesia to study biomedical engineering (BME), because I’m excited to learn how technology can be used to improve medicine and health care. My interest in this field got started when I realized how the human body resembles interconnected machines at organ, cellular, and genetic levels. It’s just amazing to imagine what is happening within our body at every second. I’m planning to pursue a graduate study in BME and learn how laboratory works can be translated to clinical applications. In the meantime, I like watching movies and going to Tasty Burger with friends. It’s good that the cinema, the burger place, and my apartment are located very close to each other!

“Now, maybe we are crazy, we are romantic. But this kind of characteristic you have to have if you want to be a drug hunter. You have to be optimistic, you have to have supreme confidence, because the odds are so incredibly against you.” – as quoted in The Treatment (2011) by Malcolm Gladwell

Mike WexlerTreasurer: Michael Wexler

Hey everyone,
I’m from Stamford, CT and became interested in medicine and engineering after becoming an EMT. It was a great experience and made me realize that I am committed to helping people through the integration of medicine and technology. I plan on going to graduate school and working in industry. In my free time I love biking, hiking, and swimming.

An optimist would say the glass is half full. A pessimist would say the glass is half empty. An engineer would say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.
- Douglas Adams
