Citizen Science Lab Team Jasio Santillan

Jasio Santillan MSMtE

Jasio Santillan was born and raised in El Paso, Texas before moving to Pittsburgh for school. For his undergraduate education he double majored in Materials Science & Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.

He also stayed an extra year to get an M.S. in Materials Science & Engineering and during his time at CMU, was a part of numerous research projects including: snake robots, artificial lungs, nanoparticle drug delivery, synthetic composite marimba keys, and programmable shape changing materials (patent pending).

Apart from research, Jasio has a passion for outreach which led him to develop a Superhero Materials Science themed class and a Science @ Home YouTube series with CMU. Eventually, this brought him to work with The Citizen Science Lab where he continues to share his passion for research and STEM.
