Ohio State University

Nelson Glover Nelson Glover received his bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and his master’s degree in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University, where he is pursuing his PhD in mechanical engineering and is an instructor of statistics. He has been a lecturer, guest instructor, teaching fellow and tutor since 2014. He is a Future Academic Scholar Training Program Fellow, a coordinator for National Biomechanics Day, and president of Society of Black Graduate Engineers, an organization he co-founded in 2016. He has served in leadership roles since his middle school years, and currently is the primary research mentor for two undergraduate students and also helps to foster the research acumen of multiple early graduate students. His research interest lies at the intersection of mechanical engineering and health, which led him to biomechanics. His goal is to use musculoskeletal modeling to better understand why injuries happen over time in physical activities such as running, weightlifting, and cutting. In preparation for a career in academia, he became a Great Lecturer Series Scholar and joined the Inclusive Excellence Council. As a faculty member, he hopes to amend current core classes to give students more opportunities to develop their engineering skills. He also would like to create a computational biomechanics course to introduce students to this topic.
