Rusty Burch is earning his Master’s degree in Bioengineering at UC Denver as part of a career transition. He spent nine years working at a defense-related agency for the Federal Government in Washington, DC, and decided he wanted to do “hands-on” work. He loves to help people and to exercise his knowledge of physics. He holds a B.S. in Honors Physics from Purdue University. He loves the mountains, but not skiing or snowboarding, and he loves relating with his parents, nine siblings, and many nieces and nephews.
