Am an Assistant Professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Georgia. My laboratory conducts research pertaining to multiscale mechanical modeling and experimental analysis of heterogeneous structures, such as blood clots, for understanding disease emanation and progression (i.e. diabetes and sickle cell disease). My expertise in the area of fiber mechanics, molecular modeling, mechanical modeling, and nanocomposite materials is being used to solve complex multiscale problems pertaining to aberrations in clot structure due to disease or excessive injury. The goal of my research program is to use a hybrid computational and experimental approach in the area of fibrin mechanics and nanocomposite materials for the development of applications that advance engineering, biomedical, and clinical research.
