Secretary: Patricia DaSilva

Hello! My name is Patricia DaSilva and I am the BMES Secretary for the 2016-2017 term. I am a rising junior from Baker College with an interest in medical devices and the intersections of technology, healthcare and culture. Born and raised here in Houston, I still love going out and exploring the city…It’s a big city I promise. Exploring aside, I also love my fellow bioengineers. The idea of creating a community for the BIOEs of Rice University to connect with each other, Houston, industrial representatives, alumni and graduate students makes me very excited to be a member of the BMES board.

Fun facts:

  • I am actually a dual citizen! With US and Brazilian passports, I am fluent in both English and Portuguese to back that up… Still working on the samba skills though.
  • I have danced ballet since I was three.
  • I adore oatmeal raisin cookies.
