Biography

Amy Alexander is the Senior Biomedical Engineer in the Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology’s Anatomic Modeling Lab in Rochester, Minn. She uses advanced medical software to convert 2D radiological imaging data into 3D printed models and surgical guides. Her main focus is working directly with surgical teams to digitally plan a patient’s bony reconstructive surgery, and then design and print surgical cutting guides precisely aligned to that individual’s case. These patient-specific models/guides help surgeons prepare for, practice, and perform complex procedures. Additionally, the 3D models form a communication bridge for patients and families. Amy chairs the Engineering Education subcommittee of the Radiological Society of North America’s 3D Printing in Medicine Special Interest Group (RSNA 3D SIG), the chair for the Education of Engineers and Technologists/Technicians committee within SME, and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering’s (ASME) Medical AM advisor committee. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering and a Master of Science in Engineering Management from the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). She holds certificates in both MIT’s Additive Manufacturing for Innovative Design and Production and SME’s Additive Manufacturing Technologies. In 2019, she was recognized as one of 14 international recipients of the SME Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineer (OYME) award. Mentors include 3D printing in medicine veterans Dr. Jane Matsumoto, Dr. Jonathan Morris, Lauralyn McDaniel, and Andy Christensen.
