Jordan is a junior in Engineering studying Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Drug Delivery and Biomaterials. She is originally from Montclair, New Jersey, but grew up spending a large part of her life in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Ithaca. Exposed to a wide variety of cultures and traditions growing up, she grew up with an appreciation for new experiences, and loves meeting new people. These experiences have also shown her the medical difficulties faced by a large portion of the population, and have driven her desires to develop efficient, low-cost medical devices for people in need. Working jointly between the Estroff Group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering and the Bonassar Group in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering, Jordan’s research focuses on characterization and replication of the meniscal enthesis, which connects the meniscus (in the knee) to bone, by analyzing optimal demineralization gradients using x-ray and microCT image analysis.After Cornell, she plans to attend graduate school.

Having spent a large amount of time on Cornell’s campus as a child, Jordan was thrilled to be accepted into the College of Engineering. Since arriving at Cornell, she has also become involved in a wide variety of extracurricular activities. She is an Engineering Ambassador, a brother in Alpha Phi Omega Gamma Chapter, a teacher for Splash! at Cornell, a member of the Recreational Fencing Club, and now a Student Assistant for Alice Cook House. A lover of languages, Jordan is also a member of the French section of the Language House.

Aside from her more academic interests, Jordan enjoys reading, sleeping, running, weightlifting, fencing, and tennis. Feel free to reach out to her if you’re interested in anything she is involved in, or if you just want to hang out!
