UC San Diego student places third in UC-wide pitch competition

Alex Phan, a grad student in mechanical and aerospace engineering at the Jacobs School, placed third in the Grad Slam 2015 competition organized by the University of California, San Diego, for his talk about an intraocular pressure sensor.
Phan and his team are working with Dr. Robert N. Weinreb at the Shiley Eye Center to develop a sensor that can be implanted in the eye and allow for eye pressure monitoring anywhere. The sensor is coupled with a smart phone to take measurements. He is working in the lab of MAE professor Frank Talke here at the Jacobs School.
You can listen to Phan's talk in the video above. It starts around the 27 minute mark.
