At LSU, Omar pursued research opportunities  that mixed his interests in biology and math. Eventually, he ended up doing an honors thesis in computational biology. Omar is now pursuing a PhD degree at Michigan State in Pharmacology and Toxicology starting from Fall 2018. Outside of research, Omar enjoys powerlifting, reading comic books, and illustration.


Daniel Marri, PhD Student,

Biomedical Engineering

Daniel grew up in Mim in the Ahafo Region of Ghana. After completing his undergraduate studies in Mathematics at the University of Energy and Natural Resources – Sunyani, Daniel completed his master’s in mathematical science from the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) – Rwanda. Daniel is now pursuing a PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering at Michigan State starting from Fall 2019. Outside academics, Daniel enjoys playing soccer, running, and music.    


Leah Terrian, PhD Student,

Biomedical Engineering

Leah was born and raised in Saginaw, MI and earned her B.S. in Mathematics with minors in Physics and Business from Lee University in 2019. Her many research interests include computational modeling, bioelectricity, and irreversible electroporation as a cancer ablation method. Leah started a PhD program in Biomedical Engineering at Michigan State in Fall 2020. Outside of research, she enjoys rollerblading, bonfires, and baking.
