Student Spotlight: Nora Mortali

April 3, 2023

Nora Mortali is a Graduate Student in the Biomedical Engineering program and is a vital member of our PEER&WISE team.  To learn more about her, read on.

Why did they choose Clemson?  How were they recruited?: I decided on Clemson for the overwhelming sense of family I felt when visiting here. As a freshman, moving 900 miles away from home can be scary, but I knew Clemson would feel like a home away from home. Clemson also has a reputable engineering program specializing in bioengineering and had a ton of resources available for engineering students. I knew I would fit right in here and have loved every year since.

Future Goals: I hope to work in medical device development or biomechanical analysis.

CECAS and PEER/WISE involvement: I worked as a UPIC intern under Brittany Sanders for the PEER/WISE department during my senior year. I am working again with Brittany this year as the Graduate Project Coordinator for GE’s Next Engineers Greenville program.

Highlights from their Clemson Experiences: I studied abroad in Valencia, Spain, during my sophomore year (2019).

Special awards, Leadership, NSBE, SWE, SHPE involvement, Tutoring, mentoring, etc: I was Vice President Recruitment for Pi Beta Phi.
