Graduate Research Assistant
University of Colorado Boulder
Camila Uzcategui is a PhD student studying materials science and engineering at University of Colorado Boulder. Her work focuses on 3D printing biomaterials for tissue engineering. Specifically, she works on understanding and developing new materials for 3D printing to mimic the native environment of bone and cartilage tissue. Camila uses a custom-built 3D printer to fabricate scaffolds that can be infilled with stem cells for tissue engineering and regeneration.
She received a BS in Physics from Florida International University and an MS in Materials Science and Engineering from University of Colorado Boulder. Her latest paper on additive manufacturing, “Understanding and Improving Mechanical Properties in 3D printed Parts Using a Dual‐Cure Acrylate‐Based Resin for Stereolithography,” is published online in Advanced Engineering Materials. She has presented her work at SPIE Photonics West, SFB and ORS.
Camila is passionate about increasing diversity in STEM through mentorship and outreach.
