Alex Ochs, B.S., M.S., Ph.D.


Alex completed graduated from the CardSS Lab with his Ph.D. in the Summer of 2023. Prior to joining the team at UW, he completed in Bachelors in Engineering Science & Mechanics at Virginia Tech (2016). However, his primary interests always lay in Biomedical Engineering through better understanding the mechanisms of tissue damage. For his Masters, he trained in cell culture wetlab work and handled data curation of databases for various projects in the Cardiovascular Modeling Laboratory at UC Irvine. He has shadowed in various clinical environments, including the Manchester Royal Infirmatory, UCI Medical Center, and through an internship at the Sansum Diabetes Research Institute.

Upon graduating from the CardSS Lab, Alex joined the US FDA, where he works as a lead reviewer on the Implantable Electrophysiology Devices Team.

In his free time, Alex enjoys endurance sports, gaming, trying new cooking recipes, and exploring outdoor spaces in the greater Seattle area. He also voluntarily still reads listserv emails from his undergrad dorm community (Go Hokies!).
