Ariana has a bachelor of science in physics engineering and a desire to develop a holistic view of the physical world. In Portugal, hoping to explore biomimicry at a graduate level, she sought international options. Fulbright scholarships provided a shortcut to The University of Akron program – welcoming physics and product design integration, and providing the unique opportunity to learn from both natural and corporate worlds.
