Alexandra Kimmel


Alexandra is a first-year medical student at Yale and investigates high-frequency blood pressure data during endovascular thrombectomy. Her previous research at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia pertained to pediatric stroke. She now uses custom MATLAB scripts and SPSS to study granular temporal dynamics of blood pressure fluctuations before, during, and after mechanical clot retrieval for large-vessel occlusion ischemic stroke. Her summer research is funded by the NIH-National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, and she is more than happy to discuss her experience with YCVL with interested medical students.
