Mercy Asiedu

Mercy received a BSc in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Rochester, NY. As a summer research fellow at the Mayo Clinic, She developed a Matlab based guide user interface to process clinical elastography data from breast and thyroid cancers. This generated an interest in the applications of biomedical imaging and optics to cancer. At Duke, Mercy is very interested in the use of light to detect and treat cervical cancer in low resource areas. Outside of school and research, She enjoys traveling, sightseeing, reading and watching movies.
