Danice Chou is an adaptive engineer, technical instructor, and STEM tutor.
She has contributed to a diverse range of projects involving design, prototype development, and a combination of mechanical components and organic geometries. She has worked with various 3D technologies from data acquisition and digital construction to physical manufacturing within the biomedical device and aerospace industries. She has worn many hats in entrepreneurial, small business, and corporate settings.
She is a life-long learner. While doing remote contract work, her values of community led her into math and science tutoring. Meanwhile, her itch to be back in hands-on manufacturing led her to become involved in a local non-profit makerspace where she gives tours, provides technical instruction, and assists with the operation of small scale manufacturing equipment like 3d printers and laser cutters.
By nature, she is a visual communicator. Her artistic side has lead her on peripheral excursions in photography, hand-drawn illustration, and computer graphics. Her other interests include biodiversity, biologically inspired design, effective storytelling, and interactive media.
She is excited about technological developments in healthcare, sustainability, environmental protection, renewable energy, space exploration, educational outreach,and community development. When she is not in the office, classroom, or work shop, she often finds herself outside tending to her garden, helping out on a local family farm, or documenting wildlife in the natural areas that surround them.
“Danice is a superb biomedical engineer & a great colleague. She boldly undertakes challenges, finding & mastering new software or fabrication techniques quickly to solve problems. Bringing her artistic talents to bear, her designs are both effective & beautiful. She speaks softly, but w/great wisdom & insight, so she is a wonderful addition to any engineering team.”
