Elton is currently a student in the Master of Science in Robotics (MSR) program at Northwestern University. He received his Bachelor's of Science in Bioengineering from the University of California, San Diego in 2015.

As part of his group senior design project, the team created a rehabilitation tool for ankle sprain recovery. Through the research, design, and prototyping process for this tool, Elton became interested in the field of bionics and their applications in the medical field, such as prosthetics and exoskeletons.

In the MSR program at Northwestern, Elton hopes to build off of the broad skillset he obtained at UCSD, and focus his studies towards his interests in medical robotics to help eventually bring to life inspirations such as Luke Skywalker's robotic arm and the Six Million Dollar Man.
