Current Officers

Ian Lohrisch

Hello! My name is Ian Lohrisch. I am a fourth year in the Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering program and am a parallel co-op with Caterpillar Inc. as of May 2022 where I work in the engine research and alternative fuels group. I hope to have an internship in the R&D of prosthetics next summer where I will broaden my knowledge of the biomedical industry. When I’m not working at CAT, completing my coursework, or fulfilling my obligations to BMES, you can usually find me outside rock climbing, skiing, or hanging out with friends.

Vice President
Carter Giles

Hi! My name is Carter Giles, and I’m a fourth year Biomedical and Mechanical Engineer. I was born and raised in Colorado which has led me to be the outdoors person I am today. I enjoy camping, mountain biking, dirt biking, skiing and anything else outside. I’m also a gear head, which is why I became an engineer, so I like getting my hands dirty working on my car or bikes. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!

Jacqueline Oswald

Hello everyone! My name is Jacqueline Oswald, and I will be the treasurer for BMES this 2023-24 school year! I am a third-year student here at CSU studying Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering. What originally sparked my interest in engineering was building various types of Lego sets (cliché I know) when I was younger. Outside of classes, I enjoy hanging out with friends, going to different coffee shops, working out, and playing IM sports! I am so excited for this school year and cannot wait to meet everyone!

Communications Director
Mya Lewis

Hi! I am Mya Lewis and am serving as Communications Officer. I am a second-year student at CSU dual majoring in BME and ME. These majors drew my attention because growing up I enjoyed working on hands-on projects and wanted to relate that to helping our bodies. In my free time, I enjoy playing volleyball, hanging out with friends, and watching TV shows, specifically, I just started Game of Thrones! I look forward to starting the new year and hope to meet you all!

Industry Director
Eric Gutierrez-Camacho

My name is Eric Gutierrez-Camacho, and this academic year, I have the privilege of being your BMES Industry Director! I'm currently in my fourth year out of five here at CSU, studying Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering (please reach out with questions about the dual-degree program). Growing up in the Western Slope of Colorado, I've always had an appreciation for our surrounding nature. Hiking to lakes and waterfalls has always been fun. Now in Fort Collins, in my free-time, I enjoy playing my electric guitar and singing. I also recently adopted Mya, my pit/lab mix puppy who's been keeping me busy on top of an internship. This semester, my goal is to push as many biomedical companies through CSU to give our members ample opportunities to engage with employers and become interns at renown companies. I look forward to seeing our success this fall!

Outreach Director
Raylee Senn

Hi! My name is Raylee Senn, and I am the 2023-2024 BMES Outreach Director. I will be in my third year at CSU, and I am dual majoring in Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Since I was a kid, I have always loved to build things and find creative solutions. I always enjoy helping others out as well. Some fun things I like to do in my free time are reading books, hanging out with friends, and going on hikes! I am excited for another successful year of Outreach events. I hope it will be a fun experience for all!

ECC Representative
Anisha Kalla

Hi! My name is Anisha Kalla and I am the ECC Representative for BMES this year. This will be my second-year double majoring in mechanical and biomedical engineering here at CSU. I was always interested in building things at a young age and wanted to help my community as time went on. This degree option was the perfect way to combine these interests. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, watching documentaries, and drawing. I am excited and am looking forward to a great year with everyone!
