Graduate Research Assistant

Lexy is in her third year with Project Honeybee and is currently working on a trial studying the use of novel mouthguards for concussion severity detection. The project is a collaboration with ASU athletics and students from other disciplines. The FitGuard mouthguard being tested in the trial was designed by two former ASU students. Lexy is in her final year as a Doctor of Nursing Practice student and currently a nurse at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.


Ashwin is a master's student in biomedical engineering in the School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering at ASU. He works with Dr. Jeff La Belle and my fantastic team on inventing the future of wearable devices. Ashwin loves concept engineering - taking ideas and making them real. His work on Project Honeybee is just that - taking ideas about how wearable devices should look and work, and figuring out how to make them a reality.
