SUZANNE CHOU, PHD

Facilitator

Suzanne Chou is a Ph.D. candidate in Mechanical Engineering and a 2019 Dow Sustainability Doctoral Fellow. Suzanne‘s current research involves incorporating marketing models in engineering design optimization in order to predict the post-purchase usage of products and services during design for low-income communities. Her goal is to explore product adoption by consumers as a key factor in sustainable design. For several past projects, Suzanne has conducted international fieldwork for needs-assessments in Panama, Rwanda, Thailand, Chile, as well as various medical settings in the Bay Area, CA.

Suzanne has a B.S. in Bioengineering with a focus on medical devices from the University of California, Berkeley. After college, she worked as an R&D Engineer for a year at LIM Innovations, a startup in San Francisco that develops novel prosthetic sockets for lower limb amputees. She still remains interested in projects related to global health.
