Tom Kovar

Master's Alumni

B.S. Chemical Engineering, Lafayette College, 2017, Easton, PA

At Lafayette, Thomas studied electrospinning for its applications in tissue engineering and drug delivery. Specifically, he studied how to control drug release kinetics by encapsulating drug-loaded electrospun fibers with thermo-responsive polymers. While at Columbia, Thomas hopes to study multiphase phase flow using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computational modeling.

Outside of engineering, Thomas enjoys sports such as basketball, golf and snowboarding.
