Our Team

Aaron Kyle, PhD

Hk Maker Lab Director

Dr. Kyle is a Lecturer in the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at Columbia University and the Founder and Director of Hk Maker Lab. He has spearheaded the formation of a global health technology program in the BME Senior Design course at Columbia. He feels strongly that engineering design is a foundational skill and could be taught to high school students. Exposing minority students to applied STEM, particularly something so tangible as solving real world health problems, will motivate them to pursue STEM degrees.
