Addison Trail alumnus Greg Formosa (class of 2006, pictured above) was recently featured in a University of Colorado Boulder article for his work with engineering the Endoculus, a robotic capsule endoscope capable of performing autonomous colonoscopies.

According to the article, “Perhaps the only thing Formosa finds more invigorating than engineering is teaching engineering, a passion that stems from his experiences as a student (at Addison Trail). One teacher who was particularly influential is Mr. Steven Nelson, Formosa’s high school chemistry teacher.”

Formosa is a mechanical engineering Ph.D. student at the university and hopes to continue his career in academia as a research professor.
