On paper, Nina’s resume is quite impressive with a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering, a Master’s in Bioelectrical Engineering, a PhD and an MBA! What was most impressive to me however was Nina’s ability to articulate her work in a way that was so clear and understandable to a lay person like myself. Her excitement, sense of curiosity and humor around the important work she is doing left me curious and excited myself to continue to follow her and see what she does next!
