Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Dr. Tepole received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. He obtained his BS degree in Mechatronics Engineering from Universidad Panamericana in Mexico City, and his MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University with an emphasis in biomechanics and computational mechanics.
Dr. Tepole is a recipient of the Claudio X. González Fellowship and a scholarship from the Mexican National Science Council. He has also received the prestigious Stanford Graduate Fellowship in Science and Engineering (SGF) and most recently awarded Stanford’s Vice Provost for Graduate Education’s Diversifying Academia Recruiting Excellence fellowship (DARE).
Dr. Tepole’s research interest is in the application of computational approaches from applied mechanics and systems biology to advance translational medicine by simulating disease, diagnosis, treatment and medical device design on patient-specific scenarios.
