Connie Manz joined the Advanced Polymer Research Lab in January of 2011. She is pursuing a doctoral degree in Materials Science and Engineering, and her research interests include biomaterials, flexible electronics, and shape memory polymers.
Connie was born and raised in Plano, Texas. She attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where she received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degrees in Materials Science and Engineering. During her time at MIT, she worked in several research labs including the Institute for Bioengineering (IBN) in Singapore and The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory. After completing her master’s, Connie worked for about two years as an associate consultant with Mars and Co. in San Francisco before returning to Dallas.
