Joseph Peterson

Joseph received his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Brigham Young University (BYU). During his undergraduate career, Joseph contributed to the research and design of a wearable spinal diagnostic device at the BYU Applied Biomechanics Laboratory. Joseph also participated in various medical technology internships where he prototyped and tested a non-invasive glucose measurement device as well as a non-invasive blood pressure measurement device. As a Global Health Fellow at Rice360, Joseph will focus on design modifications required to reduce the cost of the consumable cassette component of BiliDx, Rice360’s low-cost, point-of-care bilirubinometer used to diagnose jaundice in newborns.
