Alyssa studied Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University where she received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science concurrently. During her time at Northeastern, Alyssa worked at the Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous Manufacturing with a team focused on optimizing a continuous manufacturing process for a pharmaceutical tablet in which the tablet was produced from starting to tablet form in a single, continuous process. Alyssa’s work focused on crystallization and filtration of the active substance through the process to obtain greater yields. While at Northeastern, Alyssa also performed research in the Nanomedicine Group. Her research focused on the drug delivery of Tamoxifen using Selenium Nanoparticles. This diverse training and practical experience has provided Alyssa with the tools to understand and analyze developments and inventions in a variety of areas of art.
