Undergraduate Research Assistants Head Home for Summer
May 3, 2023
The Center for Aerospace Physiology recently held an end-of-semester potluck lunch for the research
team. Our two undergraduate research assistants, Tyler Sun and Tyler Garcia, will head home for the
summer after finishing their first year at Case Western Reserve University.
Tyler Sun is pursuing a biochemistry major with a minor in Public Health. He joined the Center for
Aerospace Physiology research lab in Fall 2022. During his time at Chamblee High School in Atlanta,
Georgia, Tyler assumed leadership roles in the Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps and US
Naval Sea Cadet Corps, which engaged in community-focused service learning projects throughout the
pandemic. His interest in research began during his high school’s two-year AP Capstone program.
Tyler Garcia is a biomedical engineering student, with an interest in biomechanics and biomedical
devices. He joined the Center for Aerospace Physiology research lab in Fall 2022. Tyler previously
interned in the biodynamics section of the 711th Human Performance Wing at Wright-Patterson Air
Force Base in Summer 2022 and will be interning with the Naval Medical Research Unit in Summer 2023,
conducting human performance testing. Tyler is a graduate of Centerville High School in Dayton, Ohio,
where he participated in the school's biotechnology program.
Our lab looks forward to welcoming back the ‘Tylers’ in August!
