About Me

Hi my name is Grace Wusk. I’m an 20th-year student (and counting) and love trying new things. I am working on my Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Tech and am developing a psychophysiological monitoring tool for astronauts during spacewalks through a NASA Space Technology Research Fellowship. I’m an avid outdoor enthusiast and enjoy connecting my experiences on the trail to future visions of explorers navigating the Moon and Mars. I’m passionate about living a healthy life and sharing  STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) with everyone. My STEMinist values prompted the creation of Ladies in the Lab at the University of Virginia, a showcase of women in STEM, to inspire the next generation of female engineers. My commitment to outreach has continued on the Ut Prosim (That I May Serve) campus of Virginia Tech. On this website you’ll find more about my research, education, experience, and community that have helped shape my identity as an engineer, explorer, and lifelong learner. Happy exploring!
