Research Summary

While completing her Ph.D. in bioengineering, Dr. Rowlinson was an instructor for Clemson University’s General Engineering program. She was a lead instructor for two sections of Engineering Graphics and Machine Design, introducing students to the modeling software, SolidWorks. She delivered in-class demonstrations, assignments, and cooperative projects for the 112 students enrolled. Prior to being a lead instructor, she was a graduate teaching assistant, responsible for developing ABET accreditation artifacts and improving online curriculum content and delivery. She also led the assessment of the General Engineering Accelerate program, which allows high school students to enroll in engineering courses for college credit.
Rowlinson participated in the National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program, serving as entrepreneurial team leader for her team. This program prepares scientists, engineers and educators to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and broaden the impact of select, NSF-funded, research projects. She developed a business model canvas for her proposed innovation using the Lean Startup method and employed customer development to unite customer needs and innovation.
