Hometown: Shijiazhuang, China
Undergraduate: Carnegie Mellon University
Major: Mechanical Engineering & Biomedical Engineering, 2017
Technology: O2 Concentrator Protection
Yifan “Jack” Wang studied mechanical and biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University. During his senior year, he was involved in the design of an O2 concentrator for rural areas of Nepal and was inspired by the need for engineering solutions to global health challenges. He joined Rice 360° in 2017 and leads the development of a protective system for O2 concentrators in low-resource settings. This fall, he will begin graduate studies in biomedical engineering and plans to dedicate his career to tackling health issues through engineering innovation.
