Research Interests

  • My research is focused on neuroscience and neurotrauma. I am working in Dr. Riyi Shi's lab at Purdue University to apply biomedical engineering approaches to understand the contributions of primary and secondary brain injury resulting from blast wave exposure. In addition to pursuing a heightened understanding of the biomechanics of blast-induced neural injury, the goals of this project include linking the mechanical initiators of injury to consequential functional alterations.
