John Michael graduated Summa Cum Laude from Rice University, where he earned a B.S. in Bioengineering with a focus in biorobotics and mechatronics. Outside of his courses, he conducted research on robotic rehabilitation for spinal cord injury, served as an advisor for new students, and played every intramural/recreational sport imaginable (from basketball and football to billiards and Spikeball). John Michael enjoys staying active, whether it’s a work out at the local gym or a trip with friends across the globe. The Texas heat has also encouraged indoor activities like tinkering with microcontroller projects, trying to improve his Spanish and Chinese, or simply watching TV and YouTube videos.
