Mechanical Engineering Research

student with robot


Our biomechanics research focuses on a wide range of human-health-related topics, integrating cutting-edge research in mechanics with cell and tissue biology across many scales in time and space: soft tissue damage around joints and the brain; analyzing complex, patient-specific cardiovascular flows; and enhancing patient care and life quality through advanced robotic devices, wearable sensors, movement models, and neural interfaces.

We work in dynamic, interdisciplinary teams, drawing in advances in mechanics, computer vision, neuroscience, computational science, cell biology, and medicine.
