I received my BS degrees in both Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Mississippi in 2015. I joined CFMS in the fall of 2015 with the focus of my research on using computational methods to investigate cellular mechanics. In my project I examine motion of biological cells in microfluidic channels and develop a comprehensive mechanistic model of the cell to evaluate cell properties.
I received my BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2016. I first joined the lab through undergraduate research program and then decided to continue as a graduate student. My research focuses on the interdisciplinary area of complex fluids flow and biophysical mechanisms. My current project focuses on blood clots – biological materials composed of a contracting cellular population within a fibrous matrix, which play an important role in wound healing and hemostasis.
I received my Bachelors degree in Physics from UC Berkeley in 2013. Afterwards, I received my MS in Mechanical Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2016. I joined Dr. Alexeev’s group at August 2016. My research focus is on using computational methods to investigate fluid-structure interaction, particularly on biological applications. My current project is on studying the physics of lymphatic valve operation.
After receiving two MS degrees from the ENSEEIHT (France) and Georgia Tech, I joined CFMS group in the fall of 2017. My research interests are numerical simulations of fluid interactions of biomimetic smart materials.
I received my BS degree in Fluid Mechanics from ENSEEIHT (France) and my MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Georgia Tech. I joined Dr Alexeev’s group in the spring of 2018. My research interests focus on the use of lattice Boltzmann method to investigate the relationship between cell mechanical properties and cell behavior in the biological systems.
