Gomez-Marquez, Jose

Jose Gomez-Marquez is a society-technology and policy major in his junior year at WPI. He joined a group at MIT and invented the Aerovax device during a one-year leave of absence from WPI. During the process many of the things he learned in the NCIIA-supported course at WPI were helpful. The Aerovax team won an award from MIT and made progress in development. To further product development Jose brought the project back to WPI with him to continue design and testing with an extended biomedical engineering team. This time as a project, the participating students in the team would receive academic credit. Six students in three teams will participate in phase two at WPI. For his own project in STP Jose will study team dynamics in a simulated R&D unit at WPI involving eight teams working on two separate projects. One project he has technically mastered, but in the other case he will depend on outside technical expert to understand in detail what the teams are doing.
