Mary Seifu

Mary received her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from Addis Ababa Institute of Technology (AAiT) in Ethiopia. Prior to joining the Rice360 team, Mary was a student leader at the AAiT Design Studio, as well as a student engineering intern at Ethiopia’s Ministry of Innovation and Technology (MinT) and St. Paul’s Hospital in Ethiopia. Mary’s work with MinT resulted in the redesign of both pulse oximeters and suction pump devices to better suit Ethiopian hospitals. As a Rice360 Global Health Fellow, Mary will support the development of a continuous, low-cost neonatal gastric suction pump to treat newborns with excessive fluid collection in the abdomen from causes such as gastroschisis and necrotizing enterocolitis.
