MST Sr. Joy Young Spreads Wings in Research

Big news for CHS/MST senior Joy Young, whose work was recently recognized in the Columbian. Here’s an overview of the journey she took through this multi-year intership. Check it out:

During her junior year at CHS in 2021, Joy was accepted by the Institute of Engineering in Medicine (IEM) at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) as a research intern for the summer of 2021 under the guidance of research scientist Dr. Linda Shi and Professor Michael Berns. Berns is particularly noted for his work as a biomedical laser pioneer. Young was accepted back in the summer of 2022 as a team leader, allowing her to further enrich her technical skills and leadership capabilities while continuing her work.

Congratulations to Joy on her fruitful, multi-year internship where she put her experience from the MST Magnet program to work. Cheers!
