Meet our Secretary, Gabriela Murrieta!
Gaby is a senior studying Biomedical Engineering here at CSULB! Currently, she is pursuing her passion for cardiovascular research under Dr. Ga-Young Kelly Suh's Cardiovascular Research Club and conducting research in left ventricular assistive device (LVAD) systems.
Why did you pick your major?
"I picked Biomedical Engineering because it felt like a mixture of what I loved: Medicine and Engineering. Biomedical Engineering is a strong foundation for the future endeavors I might pursue, like Graduate or Medical school, all in the hopes of helping as many people as I possibly can. "
What is your favorite course?
"BME 370: Introduced me to microfluidics and the microchip industry. Although difficult, it challenged me and expanded my knowledge in something I had personally rarely heard of. "
Why are you in SWE?
"SWE has become a safe space for me as a Latina Engineer. Its members have inspired me to continue to pursue engineering despite the lack of Hispanic and female representation within engineering. They have shown me I am not alone and have mentored me throughout college thus far. "
Advice for women in STEM:
"Despite the occupation or the career you plan to pursue, don't be afraid to be yourself, challenge the status quo, and make society more inclusive. "
