In 2003, Erica received her Bachelor of Science in Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh where she concentrated in Biosignals and Imaging, minored in Electrical Engineering and worked as an RF technician for the MR Research Center. In 2008 she completed her Master's degree in Bioengineering with a concentration in Rehabilitation Engineering and Human Movement; the focus of her research was accessible exercise equipment design and the physiological affects of the new technology on the physiology of wheelchair users. In 2010 she completed her Masterís degree in Rehabilitation Science and Technology and continued to focus on exercise physiology in addition to upper extremity wheelchair biomechanics and the effects of repetitive movements on the upper extremity musculature and tendons. In 2010 she returned her focus to imaging research and joined the Geriatric Neuroimaging Laboratory. Her current interests include data management, Filemaker database design, image analysis pipeline development and workflow optimization.
