Joey joined the McKay Orthopaedic Research Laboratory in the fall of 2016 and is currently working toward completion of his graduate studies in the Department of Bioengineering. When not working Joey enjoys spending his time hiking, camping, and kayaking during the summer months, and exploring all of the exciting events Philadelphia has to offer in the off seasons.
