Trevi Galemmo

Co-Entrepreneurial Lead, Smart Biopsy, Temple University

Trevi is a senior mechanical engineering student at Temple University. His experience began when he accepted a role as an undergraduate teacher's assistant for Introduction to Engineering 1101 during his freshman year. The following year, he accepted a position as an undergraduate researcher in the composites lab at Temple.

Throughout the 2021-2022 school year, Trevi worked under the direction of Parsaoran Hutapea to investigate the mechanics of bioinspired surgical needles. His work focused primarily on the development of a novel needle design which would allow doctors to extract samples from their specimens continuously. Trevi and his co-worker, Sharad Archaya participated in the I-Corps Hub Northeast Regional Program where they learned how to further develop this design into a marketable product for surgeons and oncologists.

Trevi is currently working on designing a flight simulator equipped with force feedback controls and a six-degree-of-freedom motion platform with his senior design team. His experience in these positions has required intensive design work using CAD software such as SolidWorks and Creo Parametric.
