Ceci Morales is from Monterrey, Mexico and a second year MD/PhD student in the Robotics Institute focusing in Medical Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. Her research focuses in building robots to perform heart surgeries. This is most valuable for rural areas that don’t have access to hospitals. She started doing robotics ten years ago without knowing much about computers or how to code but with a strong motivation to make a difference.
