Margo Heston receives Fulbright Scholarship
Margo Heston, a senior in the department of Biomedical Engineering, has received the Fulbright Scholarship to travel to Poland. Margo is a member of the BME student team who developed Speech Banana, an iPad app designed to provide free auditory training for hearing aid and cochlear implant users. She works under the mentorship of Tilak Ratnanather, Associate Research Professor of Biomedical Engineering and core faculty member of the Institute for Computational Medicine and the Center for Imaging Science. While abroad, Margo intends to teach English to Polish STEM students at the university level and to broaden the user population for Speech Banana by developing a Polish version. Margo’s research interests include medical device design, computational modeling, and cognitive effects of auditory training.
Congratulations, Margo, on your many accomplishments while at Hopkins!
