Kat Nguyen

Design Assurance Engineer II


Growing up as a first generation Vietnamese American, Kat has always been a strong advocate for advancing medicine to promote affordable and accessible healthcare. Kat graduated from the University of Colorado Denver, Anschutz Medical Campus with a BS and MS in Bioengineering; her master’s thesis involved developing machine learning algorithms to predict respiratory infection susceptibilities using blood transcriptomic data. From academic research to medical device internships, Kat’s versatility in experiences contribute to her every work as a Design Assurance Engineer. She has had 4 internships through her academic career, all of which contribute to her breadth of knowledge in toxicology, biologics, orthopedics, and disparities in healthcare. And as a Colorado native, Kat is thrilled to be continuing her medical device career in her home state with Meddux.

Outside of work, Kat loves to:

  • Lion and dragon dance (15+ years)
  • Ride motorcycles
  • Travel across the world
