Danica Jayco

Undergraduate Student
Biomedical Engineering, University of Michigan


Hometown: Chicago, Illinois

Education:  BS in Biomedical Engineering, UMichigan, 2021 (expected)

Outside of lab interests: I’ve been playing water polo since high school, so when I’m not in class or studying you can find me in the pool. I also like hearing people’s stories, so I enjoy listening to podcasts or finding interesting people and bothering them with my presence. Anytime in between I spend reading or on my laptop on YouTube or watching TV series.
